Living Frugally and Being Content
Yes, it really is possible!
Today, in our country the average credit card debt per household is about $16,000 and the average credit card holder has 3.5 cards. It has become possible and even commonplace for us to live beyond our means, accumulating debt without fully understanding the possible consequences, both of a material and spiritual nature. In this issue of FUNDamentals we would like to talk about readjusting our thinking to focus on living a bit more frugally, being more aware of what we save versus what we spend and even more importantly, learning to be content with what we have.
In this issue we will be sharing a few of the Baha’i writings that speak to contentment and frugality. We also came across a couple stories that relate to these attributes from people who embraced this new way of thinking. And of course, an issue of FUNDamentals wouldn’t be complete without the latest from Hank & Terri. Enjoy!
