REVERSE THE SPENDING.


Big spenders, rich or poor, are learning like me, that spending more than you have, like the US Government, follows you until your legs break over the debt line. I used to spend everything, before the check even arrived. Now, I am stimulated by resisting my fav delicacies, the extra beauty clutter, the wrapped $6.00 soaps, luxury bath salts and body creams, and the RLauren sales. I love to walk into a shop and leave with the one essential item. As I’ve moved into a 300 square foot no-kitchen casita and rented out the house, there’s no room for new stuff. I live with art, music, a few books, and a bulky 32″ television. There is a mini frig that suits two bottles, three condiments, pre-washed lettuce, and sliced cold cuts. Love the condensible lifestyle–so far.

  1. I used to try and get everything I needed from the Dollar Tree when being frugal for the longest time, minus fruits of course.
    When you are forced to be frugal you start to realize it is the little things in life that make it nice. @};-

  2. We moved into 1000 sq ft in LA 2 years ago, about 500 per person. Delightful. I keep nothing, well, almost nothing. Possessions are always disappointing. Having fewer of the is not just freeing, it’s a source of greater happiness.
