We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I live in an area where a lot of the wealthy summer. Both old and new money. My observation as well as others here is that they manage to get others to pay their way for them. And it never ceases to amaze that there are so many who aren't wealthy at all but are willing to foot the bill just for the privilege of hanging out with them. That's one way they spend less.
It seems odd for someone to write a book about how rich people live better on less. Not to simply put the book down but I'm just not sure there is much that they can offer most people. Would it be make sandwiches for lunch while vacationing at Martha's Vineyard so you have a few extra dollars for cocktails at the club? Or maybe have the oil in your $200,000 motorhome changed at Jiffy Lube instead of Oil Can Henry's to save $4. If you want decent advice on how to live better on less ask someone in the lower middle class living in middle America who has never been on welfare and worked all their life. They may or may not have pearls of wisdom but I'm guessing they would know more about living on less than the rich do.
