Another Look: What If We Had Less, But Better?
While my site is about frugal living, it is also about quality living . . . So what if you had less of certain things, but better quality things?
Let's use food and drink as an example:
- What if you ate less meat, but better cuts? They say you should eat less red meat-- right? Why not the occasional fillet mignon or sirloin?
- What about coffee? Less, but better? One step further-- homemade, but better fresh ground. You can set it up the night before with most coffee makers.
- How about liquor? $10 or $20 bottles of wine as opposed to $5 bottles . . . just fewer. I am a big premium beer fan-- I just don't drink that much of it. My view is why drink crap?
- Here's one for you . . . dessert. Dessert is a luxury, an indulgence. Why eat crap? Eat better ice cream or chocolate-- just eat less of it. Your waistline will appreciate your moderation.
I think you get the idea . . . you can apply this to many things in life.
I believe it was Mies van der Rohe who said, "Less is More."
