Anyway, time for a book recommendation. I am currently reading The Art of Frugal Hedonism: A Guide to Spending Less while Enjoying Everything More on my Kindle and it's an absolute delight.
Seriously. Read this book!
I've been on a bit of a journey for, well, decades, to find ways to live happily and meaningfully with minimal possessions and waste. As I get older it seems even more important as I'd like to (a) retire from my day job sooner rather than later, and (b) not leave a house full of crap when I die. Annie Raser-Rowland and Adam Grubb's book is a joyous roadmap to leading a frugal, ethical and healthy life. It is beautifully written and inspiring.
If you're still looking for a last-minute gift for someone, I bet they'd love the e-book. Or you could give them a hand-made voucher offering your time (in the garden, pet sitting, walking around a gallery, whatever), or a virtual goat. Or some home made shortbread or granola. Cheers!
