Macbeth the Usurper

Buy Less Stuff

The new furnace is in. The chimney is now lined and capped. Oddly enough, the new furnace doesn't use the chimney. It's so efficient (95%) that it just vents to the outside via PVC pipe. It's also very, very quiet.

Here's a story on folks buying less: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2006/12/17/AR2006121701122.html.

Interesting.

This reminds me of my life RIGHT NOW. I've been on a budget for a long time. I don't make many impulse purchases. I am more interested in getting rid of things than getting more things. I could really see us trying to do this, as ... well ... money is tight and we need to do things like this anyway.
