Where are my glasses? Where are my slippers? Where are my clothes? These are some of the common day to day questions Kate used to ask me in the past before we started on this journey to minimalism. Subconsciously, I would reply to her, “Do you remember where you last seen it?” or “Please do […]

Purchasing with your real hourly wage

Dave wrote a post the other day that made me think deeply about. The article, titled “Knowing your real hourly wage” resonated with many and was relatively well received by our readers.
