There are times that we feel the fancy to buy for something that we think we need. It might be because of often pressure from friends, family and the dictates of visible society that brings this desire. And when we realize that we only want it - not really need it, we feel sad for what we had spent for. Want and need are understood as the overall concept of demand – as the desire to own anything, the ability to pay for it and the willingness to pay.
A need is something that is necessary for a person to live a healthy life. Need can be objective and physical, such as food. In a broader sense, needs are the basic requirements for a person to be able to live and survive. These needs are food, clothing, and a house to live in. A want is something that is desired or something that a person would like to have.
To make it simple, based from the above definitions and descriptions, we can say that needs are the things needed for survival while wants are the things intended for luxury.
