The Art of Buying

I've found a new way of looking at things. I think of things, stuff, as experiences - and that has led me to value them differently.

Things with Value

While I am drawn to minimalism, I do welcome new things into my life occasionally. But some things that make it to my wishlist seem to take up permanent residence, and still never get bought.

November challenges: no unsolicited advice, more walking. And frugal month part 3.

I've become aware of how easily I give advice. And yet I know that I hardly even know what's best for myself. That's a habit I want to break. And walk more and keep living frugally.

October challenges completed

Second frugal month, evening walks and less Internet were my challenges this month. Mixed results, but not to bad!
