I love watching
Let's Make A Deal and the reason is the Prices! When I watch this show
I get amazed at the prices that food was back then. For example a jar of sauce 39 cents, a pack of bacon .89 cents, candy .10
cents, can of oysters .43 cents. A pack of bacon on sale now is $3-4
a pack. candy is $1.69-$3 depending on what you buy. A whole living room set and color TV cost about $1000. back then. A kitchen set with a garbage compactor thrown in
to the mix was about $1000. Let's not talk about car prices a brand new car back
then $2000-$8000. compared to now where
a brand new car would cost between $16,000-80,000. A whole kitchen set now cost more then $1000. Your luck
if you can get a new stove and refrigerator for that price now. Am I right? If you took 50
bucks back then and went into a grocery store. I bet you would come out with
not 1 but 2 bags full of food. I love that era just for the prices that things
were selling for.
While watching this show I noticed that some prizes are no longer offered today. Like
puppies. Gas cards for route 66, a free year supply laundry detergent, A gift certificates
tofast food places like Big Boys
Burgers and Dairy Queens, trash compactors,
mink coats. I also notice that in today's Prices Is Right show we are way less sexist then they were on the old show.
But I can still go
for the prices. Give me back in that era prices any day with today’s salary of
Being frugal to me means freedom. "The things you own end up owning you."
- Being free from having to acquire, store, and maintain things that
don't make you happier and don't make the world a better place
- Being free from the mental distraction, preoccupation, and mental drain of useless things
- Being from the corporations that try to enslave all of us in consumerism to continue their profits
- Being free from the government-backed notion that economic growth and consumer spending are always necessary and good
- Being free from the social culture (the "Joneses") that pressures us into spending on useless things
- Being free from the destructive downward spiral of depleting the Earth's natural resources
- Being free from a consumerist system that leaves some starving while others pamper themselves in luxuries
- Being free from a consumerist system that encourages waste and duplication rather than sharing
- Being free from a system that pressures us into slaving away at jobs we hate to pay for stuff we don't need
- Being free from a system that encourages isolating us from our neighbors
- Being free from a system that encourages greed and self-pleasure rather than giving
- Being free from a system that offers us false choices and false identities at the expense of true creativity and expression
Basically, it means being free from the Big Lie of our world: "shop, shop, shop and all will be well".
