Young padawan...when you get older, you'll soon realize that material possessions do not guarantee a life of happiness--it's a temporary one.

Yeah. OP sounds like he's 15 or something.
I am just asking what cheapos on RFD do about keeping up with the Jones. So far it seems that opinions are split. Some care some don't.
I do not see why I should appear 15, although thank you. Clearly many people here are concerned with brand and appearances in relation to others. It's human nature.

How do you deal with these people, do you try to keep up with the Jones or screw it?
I think you either care, or you don't care.

Best not to care, and just move on. :)

Maybe you live in a sheltered life but I know a lot of wealthy people and some don't even show their wealth.

Some people care a lot about image, some care less. As a result, some will want to show off any wealth they have and others less so. I mean, you can't deny that Mark Zuckerberg (and to an extent Bill Gates) isn't the spitting image of one of the world's top 10 richest people on the planet. However, there's plenty of people who are as well it just depends on your priorities.

I think a large part of it will also be dictated by where you're coming from and how you were raised.
