"I have always taken the view that there's really nothing wrong with little luxuries - the problem is when you (a) don't pick and choose the 'little luxuries' that you really enjoy and value or (b) indulge in little luxuries while neglecting to tend to little economies.""I think one should acknowledge and choose the 'unneccessary' expenses that you indulge in - just try to be mindful and not indulge in them out of habit, or conformity, or laziness."Well said, EditorialWe. The key to living well in the true sense of the word is "mindfulness" in everything one does. Examine every action and every dollar spent and make sure you are trading your "life energy" appropriately. As an example, to stay with the coffee theme, in our small town, we choose to buy our coffee locally. It's organic French roast and it's wonderful. We pay more than the stuff you get in a can, but then, a) it tastes lots better and b) we're supporting our local food coop and c) we're supporting organic farmers. Everybody wins. Sure, we pay 8.69 a pound for the stuff, but to balance out this expense, I buy all my jeans now at the Goodwill for 5 dollars a pair instead of 29.99 at Mervyn's. And they fit just as good.2002orbust
