You can learn about contentment in the following ways: Think About It: Before you go shopping for something you need (or want), plan how much money to spend and what things you and #146;ll be looking for (size, price, special features, color, etc.). In the store, take enough time to find the items that match what you had set out to find. Think about how and why some options won and #146;t work and some will. Talk About It: Next time you go shopping, listen for things said by other shoppers that indicate they and #146;re trying to shop by a list or that they want to spend only a certain amount of money. Also notice when other people are saying things that indicate they and #146;re content or discontent with what is being purchased. Try It: Decide on a set amount of money to spend for your friend and #146;s birthday or Christmas present, think about the kinds of things the person likes that could be purchased for that amount of money, then head to a discount shopping store. Look at several different gift options and select an item or items that will fit within the budget.
