My sweet father-in-law sent me a copy of
I've been reading through the book and it turns out
we are quite the frugillionaires.
#9 - Cut down on convenience foods.
We'll be even better when
I conquer my fear of dough.
#24 - Shop by unit price.
The lack of unit prices is just one more thing I hate about Wal-Mart
love about Kroger.
#140 - Grow your garden from seeds.
Our little seedlings started to bloom yesterday.
#188 - Get shoes repaired.
I am obsessed with our favorite shoe repairman in town.
He keeps his keyboard and guitar in his shop
so he can jam during downtime.
Love him and his good work.
#446 - Raise savers.
My parents deserve a standing ovation for raising savers.
We were taught from an early age that
you only buy what you can afford.
Taylor and I hope our children learn this lesson well.
#447 - Limit advertising exposure.
"Children aren't born consumers."
Yet another one of our many reasons
for not owning a television.
This is definitely a fantastic read if you are new to embracing a
simpler lifestyle and a good reminder for areas of improvement
for those who consistently strive to simplify.
Taylor and I live by the maxims of this book:
make do with you have
be, don't buy
focus on what you have, not what you want.
Ted, thank you for this book!
