Needs vs. Wants

Need- Wants

  • What it is.
  • How you felt when you got it.
  • When and how did you realize it was a want.
  • How do you feel about it now?


A t-shirts is from what i need to what i want. Because everyone need clothing, and when i have the basic clothes that i need,I began to want to have more different kinds of clothes. Because different kinds of clothes ¬†would be possible for me to have a look is different every day.When I 15 years old I began to realize that wear is no a casual things, the clothes are started from “I need” to ¬†“I want” in my life.
