Well it’s official, I can retire IF i stop spending money. It’s that simple, I have to stay out of the stores and buy only what-I-need. My short term idea is to switch to a list instead of browsing-in-stores which only leads me to buying things I never knew I definitely needed-to-have-now. I know, it seems like an easy concept but we’re used to going-to-malls for no reason and similar with Home Depot or Lowes – guess what happens. ? Suddenly we believe we’ve been missing a new grill all this time, or that we need a brand new lawn mower (our $50 used old one still functions fine). My brain is no match for store’s hired guns that design ad displays. I plan to stay out of them (and malls too) as much as I can. WISH ME LUCK or else I’m doomed.
