Why downscaling is the new black

Why downscaling is the new black

We live in a 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 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—mostly 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.

Great idea, Allen. About ten years ago, a charity asked me for some ideas on attracting donations for food banks. I suggested a large ballroom event, full of glitter and wonderful costumes, and movie personalities. Except when everyone sat down to eat, the food was canned soup and a couple of pieces of white bread. Someone would then stand at the podium and say, "This is how a lot of people eat, folks. And they don't get dressed up."
