This blog is going to teach you and I that we really don’t have to keep up with the Joneses I’m far from perfect, I have always wanted the latest phone or newest gadget, but I want all of that to change. Does having the latest and greatest ever make us happier for more than a few minutes…hours…or… days???? Does that brand new car sitting in your driveway really make you better than your next door neighbor that has a paid off 13 year old vehicle in his? Does getting into more debt each year to have that new shiny (blank) really make you happy or is that just what society wants you to think. I mean I thought I loved new things, but I’m coming to realize that I don’t love them they only make me happy for a short period of time then I need something new to fill that void. Then it just keeps happening over and over again. I want to be happy without new or expensive things. I’m not rich, but I’m not living on the street. I’m not looking to become the next million or billionaire, but I would like to stop living pay check to pay check. I don’t know exactly what this blog will all be about, but I hope a few people will come along for the ride.
