Needs vs. Wants

Something I always thought I needed was a cell phone. When my parents gave me my first phone in grade 6, I was excited and happy. As I went through middle school I started to use it less and less, I only used it for games, calling, and texting. When I got to grade 9 everyone had phones and used them for all different types of reasons but I only used it for three things: texting, calling, and snapchat. I realized that this object I had wanted for so long, I didn’t really need it. I could use a public pay phone or a friends for to call someone. I still have a cell phone I just try not to spend all my time on it, I think this is a want because there are different ways to get in contact with other people.
