Good points. Someone once told me it costs up to $150 a week to run a car. Yet we somehow associate driving with 'freedom'...? Or else we see driving as our 'right'...

Surely true freedom is having more control over your money - more say as to what you spend it on. I made this 'lifestyle assessment' a few months ago and I realised that, if I had the choice, I would not choose to spend my money on driving and nice furniture and grass seed for my lawn. If I had the choice, I realised I would buy myself more time with my family while they are still young and healthy and in their 'prime'

So I moved to Toronto and started working 4 days a week. I've told people this and they've said 'Oh well - that's great if you can afford it'. That's a cop out. You can always find a way. Our Toronto house in less than half the size of our Dundas one - there is always a way.

People think they do not have a choice in these matters but in reality we have more choice than we realise.



PS Ry - I just ordered that book :)
