Thrifting your way to a better life

Philosophy of stuff

2 Comments

A little bit of real ‘philosophy of stuff’ for your weekend reading, especially if you are fog-bound as we are today and have time on your hands. Get your brains around these ideas, not about possessions or spending, but actual perceptions. If we are not going to step into the same river twice Mr Heraclitus, isn’t that a great opportunity?

Call me thrifty, prudent, tight or even a miser, but squirreling money away is definitely my thing. The ins and outs of how saving money became a lifestyle, in order to work towards a specific lifestyle change. Follow me on that journey and learn to look at life in a different way.

  1. an interesting read, thanks. I especially like the last statement: ” the appearance of simplicity belies a complex underlying reality.”

    • Thanks Pelin. I agree, and in terms of the minimalist ethos, it makes me want to consider should we consider all aspects of our possessions- practical, sentimental, cultural, spiritual etc – before determining their real value.
