Carissa at Lowercase Letters had a great quote that I found quite inspiring:
"born in omaha in 1930, warren buffet is on again, off again the world's richest man. and arguably the greatest investor in american history. in 1958, at the age of 27, he bought a grey stucco house in omaha for $31,500 and lives in it to this day. the oracle of omaha is notoriously frugal. he eats at dairy queen, loves burgers and cherry coke... plays the ukulele, drives 1.5 miles daily to his modest office, sits at the same desk that belonged to his father... he shuns high society and instead makes popcorn at home, watches some television and plays bridge. his advice is to live life as simple as you are, just wear those things in which you feel comfortable and don't waste money on unnecessary items." (- richard a. swenson, in search of balance.) wow... especially coming from a billionaire. i think we all can learn from this.
