Buying is bad

The grandmother of my colleague used go say that buying was embarressing.
Buying showed ghat something in the house had been broken, was worn out or could not be mended.
Buying was just a general sign of careelessness.

She came obviously from a time when couples set ut a house, usually when they married. Then they lived with what they had for the rest of their lives. They cared for it and kept each item as well as they could.

Do we have to be much different?
