Expenditure rises to meet income.
Possessions increase to fill space.
These are two very obvious truths to me. Have you noticed how family homes are getting bigger? And how, when you get a bigger home, you need more possessions to fill that home?
What if we chose a home suited to our minimum needs, rather than our maximum?
What if we bought according to our needs, rather than our wants?
What if we ignored those pesky Joneses, stopped looking at what our neighbours are doing, and instead focused on our own wellbeing?
