What is the Difference between a Need and a Want?

Piggy Bank

A want is something you would like to have.


It is not absolutely necessary, but it would be a good thing to have. A good example is MUSIC.



Now, some people might argue that music is a need because they think they can't do without it. But you don't need music to survive.

A need is something you can not live without.






Examples would be Food, clothing, and a place to live. 

*Some foods like cookies and ice cream can be considered a want since you do not necessarily need them to survive......(Unless you're Cookie Monster!)
