If you tell a lie enough times you can come to believe it.
From people stuffing down a cheeseburger between salads, pretending debt doesn’t exist, hiding a drug problem in the family, or even ignoring domestic violence, it can get extreme. Keeping up appearances dictates a lot a of external behaviour and harbours internal issues. On many levels we all do it.
I blog about frugality. I pride myself on being frugal, conscious of my spending decisions and able to think beyond the good something will do for me and how it will affect others. This leads me to try to be sustainable too. Frugality is not just about saving money it is also about saving resources. I want to share this message and live it to show others it can be done.
Am I really living frugally and sustainably?
A friend called today wanting to meet for a meal this evening. A meal out in this city can cost a pretty penny.
