Good afternoon.

That is a great question. Why do you buy things? What makes you decide that you "have" to have something?

Advertisements play a huge role in making us believe we need something, when we actually just want it.

Why do people buy?

Do they buy it for their actual needs? Or just to show off.

Do they buy things just because something is on sale.

The main thing here I think is discerning between "need" and "want"

I think you need to make your question more specific. Why do people buy instead of bartering or instead of being self-sufficient? The answer to that question lies in the power of divided labor and the convenience of having an agreed upon medium of exchange that is easily portable. Given that, why do people buy food, clothing, shelter? Well, because they need to in order to survive. Why do they buy things that are not necessary? Well, that's a more difficult question, with multiple answers depending upon what items are being considered. You could also be asking how people decided what things to buy, which is again a very different question from the others. So, what are you asking, exactly?
