Best posts

Unlike millions of people, I do not have the willpower to keep a journal without outside encouragement. So at the beginning, I decided to keep this blog public: You, the reader, vitally assist me to keep going on this project of learning how to deal with my appetite for stuff.

Your hits, likes, shares, follows, and outbound clicks really have helped my morale. Thank you so much for them.

(By the way, I don’t get any recompense or reward at all if you click on a link or even buy anything I highlight here. I don’t get samples or freebies or pay or anything like that. I write about stuff out of sheer fascination.)

It seems right to list a few entries you may have missed that you might enjoy the most. I intend to keep this list of a manageable size by adding and deleting occasionally.

Please pardon my quoting myself: “As with rosebushes, asceticism involves pruning down the deadwood to what may look like a pathetic stub of the former bush, but which is actually the vital, living part, the only part that is capable of growing and blooming.”

With thanks to you all,
Ascetic Shopper
