Are we all paying for things that we don’t really need to pay for or at least could be paying dramatically less for? A friend send me a video about how to keep one’s razor blade permanently sharpened. I tried it out and it’s working so no more razor blade expenses for me. It got me thinking what areas of areas of our lives could we be self sufficient in. There is pressure to make us more dependent on corporations, for example, with the move away from purchasing products to lease only, like Adobe software. What can we do to cut out the middle men and be more self-sufficient.
