Cooking from a cookbook

Remember the joy of having flour everywhere and olive oil on your fingers, or simply glancing over to an open book, rather than on a small screen of a smartphone which keeps on going off, or worse, gets filled with ads.

Listening to an actual radio

Poor people buy cheap clothes that have to be replaced much more often than the more expensive clothes rich people buy. In the end, poor people spend more money.

Buy quality.  Spend the most on the things you will wear the most. Take proper care of your things too, so they last longer.
