If you’re living frugally, then you are balanced. We are taught from
such a young age that all we want out of life is to grow up, get a
job and buy stuff! It takes just as much training to back away from
You guys are great and should be extremely proud of
yourselves, you are not only making the world a better place, but you
are extending yourself and making your kids appreciate the real
beauty in life. I do it here too, my child likes nothing more than
for me to bake a batch of cookies instead of buying store-bought.
Being a single Mum on welfare, it’s not easy but we’re happy and
that’s the main thing. I’m the same as Kathy in that my friends look
at me like i’m odd (and i am, but not for these reason lol).
buy the pre-made things for my child, if i do it, then i know what’s
in it, it’s cheaper and it’s nicer. We buy organic meats and apart
from seeing a difference in the humans in the family, my dog is like
a youngster again, proving that we don’t need nor assimilate the
chemicals in our meats. I baked cookies at xmas for my friends, and
when my friend’s fil died, i cooked food and sent it to them, and
they were all aghast whispering to each other what strange things i
but noone knocked back homemade cookies, and my friend really
appreciated not having to cook at their emotional time.
there’s nothing wrong with any of us and at times, it’s alot harder
to work out what to cook from scratch but that’s what makes it all
the more satisfying. we only need look at our kids and family to
know we’re doing the right thing. (here kathy, i borrowed your
