The Value of "Stuff"

Once again I’ve been reminded that getting “stuff” won’t make you any happier. It won’t fill a void in your life and it won’t have the life-altering effect that you think it will.
I find it amazing that no matter how many times I’m reminded of this I still find myself wanting, or even obsessing about a material possession that I must have. Then, after I’ve gotten it, I (again) realize that even the newest, most amazing “thing” fades quickly to old hat and commonplace. And by achieving that thing you’ve raised the bar on what material item you’ll have to get next time to satisfy your craving for the next big thing.
How do we stop this cycle of materialism? What can make us content with what we already have?
