Christine Des Garennes of the New-Gazette did a profile on me and my writing for Wise Bread. It made the front page! Checks and Balances: Living large on a smaller budget.
Although some of his blog posts are practical, such as “how to make sourdough bread and save a buck on every loaf,” Brewer’s “central shtick,” as he put it, is all about doing what you love.
Ask yourself, are you working a job just to earn enough money to support your lifestyle?
“If you live frugally enough, you can change your work based on what you want to do,” Brewer said. After your family, he said, there is nothing “that has such an importance on whether or not you’re happy than your work.”
[Updated 29 May 2009: It used to be that the News-Gazette closed articles behind a pay wall after a week, but as of today the link seems to still be working.]
