Today’s post is over at the Simple Green Frugal Co-op, and is titled “Frugal Food Like The Old Days“. My love of the humble scone comes to light, as does my ingrained habit of taking a home cooked lunch to work at least four days a week. It saves me a blooming fortune, and I get to use the yummy jam I make, with lashings of cream.
Over at the Simple Green Frugal Co-op, I have written a new and original essay about a psychological effect that I stumbled upon, called the “Diderot Effect”. It is one of those things that advertisers try to tap into to trick us into becoming rampant consumers. It tricks us into buying crap we don’t really need, with money we don’t have, to impress people we don’t particularly like.
If you would like to learn a bit more about the “Diderot Effect”, then pop on over to the co-op for a read of my post titled “Treasure What You Have“.
Today’s main post is over at the Simple Green Frugal Co-op. For those new readers I am proud to be a part of this enthusiastic co-operative of writers who post daily about all things, well, simple, green, and frugal. I have been writing there fortnightly since December 2008.
Anyway, my post is about “Exiting the Rat Race“, which is something that took me a while to understand, and to act upon. It only took me about 42 years to figure out that what I was doing was unsustainable, and therefore I had to become sustainable!
So pop on over to the co-op for a good read.
