“The Less You Have = The Less Stuff You Crave = The Less Money You Need to Live”
I’ve been thinking a lot about how much my little family consumes quite a bit lately since doing The Minimalist Challenge, and from clearing so much out. (Well, I always try to keep it on the top of my mind but you know, life stuff happens and wiggles in, and sometimes it moves lower on the list of priorities than I would like it to.)
I started thinking about it like this, the less stuff you have = the less stuff you crave = the less money you need to live. I think the key is to fill the time up with other things than shopping and consuming so keep yourself BUSY! Check out 56 Things to do Instead of Spending Money for some ideas.
Start with clearing out, being grateful for what you have, and continue that cycle so you need less money to live on. Then, you don’t have to be stuck doing a job you hate to be able to afford all the crap you don’t really need.
What do you think? Do you find that you crave less when you keep things simple and then throw a dose of gratefulness into the mix?
