|Store front covered in lights|
The leading department stores need our sales to meet all the sales' projections they reported. So they throw ads at us - coming from every direction - and we are led to buy things we didn't even know we wanted! We are sheep being led to the cash registers.
I am pleading to all who read my posts - this year think about what is really important to YOU. Minimize the list. Don't just buy something because it's on sale, or because you think you have to give a gift, or feel guilty for cutting back...
I am proposing that we all cut back, and buy only what is truly needed to give as gifts, only purchase thoughtful gifts instead of expensive, and remember we cannot buy love or affection.
|New idea - Book Christmas tree|
With this minimal approach
we will gain much -
- peace of mind
- more time to talk with our neighbors, and loved ones
- more time to write and read. To me - that is a holiday gift in itself!
Keep reading - Keep writing!
