Give Hope

Give Hope

http://www.missminimalist.com/2011/12/minimalist-holiday-give-hope/

“Minimalism isn’t just about decluttering our closets and living with less; it’s determining when we have enough, so we can do something good with the excess.”

“The impact goes far beyond the items you give, or the check you write. Because when someone is down on their luck, out of resources, or with nowhere else to turn, your act of kindness gives them hope. Just knowing that someone out there cares can give them the strength to carry on, the feeling that they’re not alone, the hope that tomorrow will be a brighter day. It’s the greatest minimalist gift you can give.”

First heard about this during a Buddhist talk some time ago but I was not able to put it into action because did not have the detailed instructions.

Frugal Living

…comes quite natural for me and it seems my daughter also inherited the frugal gene. Her latest find was 5 packets of Vegan Boca Burgers at half price. She had been eying them for a few weeks waiting for the price reduction. Being frugal is also about reusing and recycling and knowing the difference between your ‘wants’ and ‘needs’.
