My definition of Cheap
I believe today, many hear the word "cheap" and automatically think: inferior, stinginess, no value. In fact I think the word: Cheap has a bum rap!
* What is cheap about living within your means?
* What is cheap about accepting (for a time and a season) that your financial circumstances have changed
and you have to live differently and more purposely due to those changes?
* What is cheap about voluntarily wanting to simplify your life - on a permanent basis?
Cheap is as simple as it gets. Trying to live on a unemployed budget or a under-paid budget is not easy to do. In fact I admire those who can live simply, and be as happy or happier than those who have. I believe living simple, buying cheap (not necessarily inferior) recycling, living purposely is American. That is a precious legacy, past generations have handed down to us. That American way of hard work, making do with what we have, and still living a good life.That is how America became America! I think we have forgotten.
These recent times, many of us are seeing family, friends and neighbors having to make changes. If we are not part of that (yet) we don't quite understand, all that is involved and in many ways, we may even pity those who are experiencing their bad time. Don't pity - take notes instead. You never know, when "your-time" will come.
