Material possession attachment reflects a vital and ubiquitous way people valuate goods. A significant body of literature provides a foundation for describing what material possession attachment is. Yet there remains more to investigate about how possession attachment involves acquisition, consumption, and disposition behaviors, how it compares to place, brand, or consumption experience bonds, whether marketing activities influence possession attachment, and how having attachments affects consumer well-being. An integrative review of the attachment literature is needed to provide interested scholars a baseline from which to deepen and broaden our understanding of how people valuate goods.
