robbing scarecrows
...Thoreau's Journal: 08-Jun-1857

Mother was saying to-day that she bought no new clothes for John until he went away into a store, but made them of his father’s old clothes, which made me say that country boys could get enough cloth for their clothes by robbing scarecrows. So little it need cost to live.

the cost to live!! if we make do!, and think every time before we buy about wants and needs!,we can save a great deal of money! and yes still be happy! i have enough wants in my life when it comes to money! and my needs are few! second hand and recycle are important to me! continually surprised at the amount saved!,but that's not the mindset of today ??????. michael jameson oldantiqueguy@hotmail.com
