buying used

well, buying diamonds and rings is another huge con of our economy.
go to the mall and pay 3k for a ring you can probably pick up
second hand for 500 bucks.

vacations, well, 3k for a couples cruise, versus a cabin at a state
park :-)  or, if you like crowds, there's always iron man. :-)

big houses.  geez now there's a waste of money if i ever saw one.
work and slave your life away to have some 5 bedroom 4 bath
megalopolis 100 miles from work.  and then, spend the tiny bit of
time you have to spend there, thinking up ways to remodel it

fancy restaurants.  well while it certainly is nice to be waited on
by a nice looking, young person in fine restaurant, with a 100
bucks, a teacher can take off an entire day of work :-)  and spend
it enjoying 9 or 10 hours of the morning and afternoon, as opposed
to about an hour or so in an uncomfortable chair :-)

collecting art.  i can download just about anything that's ever
been arted, for free :-)  there's the library and museums and of
course, there are inexpensive copies, that are just as beautiful as
the original :-)

anything else that people do because they enjoy it.  this is really
the crux of it for me.  let go of the dream of the ring that no one
else has ever worn, in return for 2500 dollars to spend on 5
vacations in a beautiful state or national park, nature wonderland
:-)
