100 things

With just a little bit of trepidation, I think I'm going to be posting on LJ again, just because I really want to participate in the 100 Things Challenge:

{Take the 100 Things challenge!}

Doesn't that sound cool?

I'm going to write on the topic of "100 Things I'm Doing To Live Cheaply Without Feeling Poor". I've always perused "frugal living" sites, but while I'm getting my company off the ground and business is slow, I've had time to go after them with more gusto. As always, I'm bewildered by some people's ideas of what "frugal living" is, like this guy who recommends I get rid of my second car, downsize my house, and cancel the cable and cell. Since I don't own a car, or a house, or a cellphone, or a television, and buy everything second-hand already, his suggestions are pretty useless -- and I'm not about to cut my own hair!

So I've decided to try to write about how someone who already lives like a pauper (at least by this guy's definition) can still take steps to live more simply... without sacrificing my quality of life. I'm not going to go all Earth Mother and grow all my own food -- been there, done that, never again -- but hopefully I can test out and share some things that might be useful to others, while documenting my own experience.

So that's the goal. We shall see how it goes.
