I was at an auction today. I was standing in line to pay for my purchases – deals really. I had a good look at what other people bought. I saw boxes with puzzles and posters, dishes and trinkets, crappy art (though who am I to say) old chairs and barbeques I wouldn’t boil water on. One man’s junk is another’s treasure but I saw no treasure.
It became apparent to me that if one can purchase something for less than it might usually go for we gladly throw money and pee our pants all the way home until we are faced with the reality of where to put everything. Isn’t our world based on getting something for less? I can’t think of much that doesn’t come on “sale”. Aren’t we all drawn to 20% or even 50% off? If someone or something tells us we are getting away with more for less we take it; on credit no less. We borrow money to buy something that has seemingly lost some of its value.
I have three days worth of dog poop in my backyard. It’s a door crasher, 75% off; early bird special and while quantities last. Products may not be exactly as shown. Seriously, I’m giving this shit away! I imported it and be damned, I’m taking a loss on this product because I’m a caring capitalist- we’re rampant, just check your flyers.
Hello, I have just nominated your blog for the Beautiful Blogger Award:
Please accept my kind regards without any obligation. This is my thanks for being an inspiration to me on my blogging journey.

Hi Rebecca, I just found your nomination. I am pleased and grateful. It’s rewarding to know some of what I say has an effect on others. Take care, Brett
Thank you!!! We are on an exciting journey…
It is exciting. I was thinking before I started to blog my thoughts were only that. When we put to type something that was residing inside us it puts flesh on ideas and feelings and sometimes if we are fortunate another blogger adds some clothes to our form. Thanks for dressing some of what I express.
I agree wholeheartedly!!! 🙂
Reblogged this on Paradise.
