Jackie's Forget Me Nots

No vase can overflow if you never fill it up.

What meaning do you place on a person, place, or object to give it Value?

If I give something all the meaning it has for me, then it has the degree of value that I put on it. It can mean a lot less or more according to different individuals.
ashtray-295028_640My ashtray for example. I have given it all the meaning it has for me. A place for stinky, dirty, butts. It has value because it is essential to a smoker, and keeps cigarette ashes and butts off the floor. When clean it can store jewelry or other things. It is a convenient placeholder. Nobody values an ashtray more than a smoker. ( I am just using that as an example. I do not condone smoking, and you should not smoke. Stick to the adage of ‘Do as I say, not as I do.’)
Nowadays people put more value into the things they own. If you want a comfortable mattress, for example, the price you are willing to pay for just a comfortable bed to sleep on will cost more because of the brand name giving it more value, and it will also depend on how satisfied customers are. Some benefits you do not necessarily need, but the value of a comfortable bed includes a tempurpedic mattress.

People need their things to have value. Otherwise, it just gets thrown away or ends up broken in the garbage. Buyers beware. Sellers who force you to buy name brand furniture and appliances hope it will get the customer to make a purchase by paying more for the extra value. It is up to you to determine the value of something. Instead, they should focus on assessing their clients. Ikea is a good example, but their products fail because Ikea leaves it up to buyers to figure out how to put it together. That is just wrong IMO. Things tend to break during installation, and the minute you take a product out from the seller lot it depreciates.

Some brand name stores offer customer incentive programs that let you carry a value member discount card of some sort. Shoppers Drug Mart, for example, Safeway, Wal-Mart, Amazon, all have member benefits when you make a purchase.
