Live Within Our Means

What is it like to live within our means?

Again, it is about individual’s ability to control the temptation to buy and purchase. Of course, if it is necessary like buying an oven for baking and hosting, then we just got to get it. But have we thought of other options like sharing with neighbours, friends, or recycle the ovenĀ from friends whom no longer bake, get from the thrift shop etc?

Fundamentally, I personally think that to live within means it is possible if we are willing to withstand some inconvenience like taking a cab vs sharing a bus or MRT during raining days. Is being convenient more important than saving a few dollars?
