I am cheap, I like to not spend money, and I am a student. But I also like new things and it is fun to go out to brunch like everyone else. Though constantly buy new things is tiring I find. This blog post is my little rant about friends of mine who spend too much money.
I don’t care what people do with their money, it is their choice.
But what I don’t like is when all our adventures, hangouts and activities are heavily reliant upon buying things and spending money. What ever happened to the picnic? Playing with toys we already have? I feel like something is lost in this heavily consumerist world. Or maybe I am just bad at being a good consumerist? ha!
This weekend I have a game, to spend 3 minutes appreciating an object, any object. I have yet to work out the details but I think it would be fun.
Do you have friends that like to spend? Are you a saver or a spender? What activities do you like to do that doesn’t cost you anything?
