Thrifting our way (temporarily in Bulgaria) to a better life

Make like a tree

Leave a comment

These images have done the rounds on the internet, so apologies but I’m not sure of the original source to give credit where it is due.  These trees make me consider how they have been expected to be limited or controlled by their environment, but yet life itself has a way of taking what opportunities there are, and finding a path or a route that enables them to, excuse the pun, branch out in new and often unexpected directions.  I would say these trees have gone ‘off grid’ except for the fact that the geometric designs they have created mean that doesn’t quite sound right for the point I want to make. In chaos there is order perhaps too.

Be like a tree folks.

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.
