This Weeks Discussion Theme: Beating Inflatiooon
Empty shelves, price of groceries going up, and cost of gas rising!? But I wanna buy vidya gaem and eat tendies! Reeeee!!!
Inflation isn’t just a talking point for our pooooliticians. Maybe you haven’t noticed it yet or maybe you are already budgeting differently. Maybe it’s just the normal ebb and flow of economies or a direct result of the big coof. Regardless in this weekly our discussions focus is inflation and how to beat it.
- Have you noticed rising prices? What things cost more than normal?
- Have you had to budget differently? E.g., Didn’t watch the new Marvel™ movie because you needed to buy groceries…
- Share savings / budgeting advice / personal inventory management tips. E.g., You don’t need the newest video games instead stalk up on a weeks’ worth of nonperishable food (or something like that).
I know I don't need to tell you guys, but here's some non-consumerey gift inspiration, since Christmas is coming up:
Hand made wooden spatulas or cutting boards (simple, fun to make, and useful). If you have access to a laser cutter you can engrave them as well!
Home made jerky, or dried fruit (apples and banannas dry really well). I don't know why but the store bought versions of these things are not nearly as good as homemade.
Literally any baked treat. Bonus points if you make more than one type and turn them into variety gift boxes.
Paintings, framed photos (works well for family).
Really anything you can craft makes a nice gift. Pottery, clothing, preserved foods, etc.
Throw in your ideas in the comments!
Hey guys, I've been lurking here and keeping track of the wrongthink for about a year now and usually we don't intervene but I felt the urge to step in here too much. First of all, let me preface this by saying how much I've grown to love you schizos in the time I've been observing you. You really have inspired me to succumb to consumerism less in life. That being said, I'm EXTREMELY disappointed in all of you. Despite intense provocation from rdrama and comments about how you'll go make the trannies on rdrama rope themselves, this "raid" so far has only been one lone person wandering over. I'm genuinely rooting for you to do better.
