The story was set in utopian future, post-scarcity setting. A man, living on a island (?), starts ordering more and more products of all sorts. While it wasn't a huge issue, it eventually drew attention as to why he was doing it. If I remember correctly, the conclusion was the this man was "a relic of the previous age" - the age when first factories started overproducing and people were forced to consume all the products that came out. This age was already over, people were consuming what they wanted, but this man for some reason went back to old habits. I think they eventually decided to let him be as he is, since that was easier than trying to rehabilitate him.
It was a part of a book containing multiple short stories, each showing an event of growing civilisation. They were separated by several years each. Short story previous to the one I remember most might have been about the overproduction era, I'm not sure.
I thought it may have been Asimov's, but I couldn't find anything matching. I read it in Polish translation 10-15 years ago, but it was older than that.
Any ideas what could that be? It's been bugging me for a long time.
