My life is mostly simple. I learned simplicity by living with families and friends who lived a simple life.One thing that sands out in our simple living is what we eat. Our food is very basic, cooked at home and not costly.We do not waste any food because we do not cook more than necessary. We grow vegetables in our back yard. We eat more nutritional organic food which is good for our health. We have all the basic things we need in enough quantity. We turn water off and lights off when we do not need to use them.We never had any garage sell because we do not have more things than we need. We visit department and other stores only if we need to buy things. We make the full use of things.We do not compare our possessions with others who often go for new things even though they may not need them.

Jagdish -- Someone said you can never get enough of what you don't really need, which seems to be the way of too many of us. Your simple living is happily so in contrast to that.
