Crescent rolls, chocolate chips, marshmallows, and a little bit of crushed up Graham crackers - fold up crescent roll over the top and bake 350 for 15 mins
Hello Anon! First of all, thank you for the question. I am currently dealing with similar issues as I try to simplify my life. Second, I am unsure *exactly* what you mean by “until there will be nothing left,” unless you are exaggerating to make a point.
Let’s get to the crux of the question. This is not just about materialism. That is the first thing you need to understand. This is about consumerism. You say you are wanting more and more. Materialism is placing too much emphasis on material things & concerns. What you seem to be doing is fighting a desire to consume.
Realize that everything around you is set up from the word go to make you want to consume. It is the very foundation of our economic system. Railing against this is hard because for however long we have lived in this society, we have been programmed either covertly or overtly to pursue that kind of lifestyle.
There are many people more qualified to answer this than I am. As passionate as I am about this subject I am very flawed. I will say this though:
Begin by examining the things in your life that you either need or bring you the most joy. Realize that if what you are consuming does not fall into either of the areas, it is likely not necessary. Try to set some limitations on your spending & intake. Before you purchase or accept anything, ask if it is something you actually need. If you merely want it, ask yourself why. Is this something you will be fascinated with for a short time? If so, skip it.
You may not be looking for a minimalist lifestyle (or maybe you are), but you may still find a bit of inspiration in reading about it.
