Why downscaling is the new black

Why downscaling is the new black

We live in a聽plastic world where everything seems to have become disposable. Surrounded by stuff we don't need, bought with money we don't have, we keep accumulating聽things to make ourselves feel more at home in the world. For many, having a lot...

Thanks for sharing that Robert. Just because you are living on a smaller income doesn't mean you have to be poor. Personally, I prefer to eat at home. Not only because it's cheaper and I get to spend that saving on travel (instead of expanding my waistline), but because it's healthier. I follow a very clean diet and cooking for myself means I know exactly what I'm eating. I don't begrudge the "foodie" people. If they are happy to spend their money on their tummies, good for them. I prefer to spend my money on experiences :)

Good piece, @Amour Setter. I left an advertising career (or maybe it left me) to write novels, short stories and children's books. Through the process, I gave up a lot鈥攎ostly things I didn't need. Believe it or not, the people who worry me most now are the ones who retire and become "foodies." I know people who eat out three nights a week (at expensive places). I honestly think the worst thing you can be when you start living on a fixed income is a foodie. I became a "less foodie," a term I use to describe learning to eat on a very small amount of money. I've become very creative, and very conscious of what I can make that's healthy and cheap at the same time. I guess you could also call me a "souper" 'cause I'm making a lot of soups. Thanks for the post.

Dear Praveen Raj Gullepalli another extremely beautiful and thoughtful composition. Amazing indeed. Many commentators showed interest about this paradise on earth and the ensuing conflict. You have marvellously described in your poem. Thanks for your fabulous contribution.

Spectacular indeed, the land and the tree! Dear Anees Zaidi, here are my thoughts, inspired by your words! About those that would take, out of selfishness, pride and prejudiced hate, that which is neither's property...the paradise on Earth that Kashmir is... Take not that which belongs to another; even if by own decree; Find your own space under the sun, and let them all just be! Share what you need not, and let the others be fed; let not a single species on our planet, go extinct or go dead. This Earth belongs to no man, but the wind, the creatures and the tree; A Human is just a citizen, meant to be footloose and fancy free! Stake no claim over territory, Let the world be without any measurable boundary; The only things that divide us, should be the hill, the dale, the glacier or the sea.
