8 – Shiny new toys

8 – Shiny new toys

David Waumsley and Nathan Wrigley explore the notion of “shiny new things”. This is when you buy things that, perhaps, you don’t need, just because it is new and you don’t have it!
We find out that Nathan is a complete sucker for buying things that he does not need, will not use, and perhaps does not even want. David, on the other hand, is more more clever and seems to only buy the things that he needs.
