Being Creative

Growing up overseas in third world countries gave me a new perspective on stuff. I watched poor children who lived in boxes make shoes out of discarded tires and make toys out of old bike rims and a stick. They had nothing but were happy and content to make something out of nothing.

How often do we think we need more stuff. Do we need a separate gadget for each purpose, or can some things multi-task? The television tells us we need a special strainer for our pasta. Mine works well for anything. Do we need 12 pairs of shoes? How many winter coats do we need?

Simplifying and frugality sometimes go hand in hand.

Just a frugal thought for the day.
