Living in a Van (Day 415) - Thrift vs. Planned Obsolescence

Wheels are turning ... but not Boscha's!! These are my initial thoughts about thrift vs. planned obsolescence. These are topics I plan on writing and expanding my thoughts on. When we realize that most things we buy aren't made to last, we can develop the skills necessary to do a lot of repairs ourselves. From sewing a hole in our clothing to fixing our van. This can create more freedom, for our spending habits will be reduced. Van life is great because it gives us a new perspective by magnifying our spending habits and it's easier to see exactly what we spend our money on and why. Over the past year, we've learned to assess our needs vs. wants, and practice thrift as often as we can!
