Discussion: Are You Living?

Are you living?

I ask you, dear reader, this question that I have begun to ask myself lately.

I do not mean it to be dramatic nor hyperbolic. Instead, I am curious as to what everyone’s honest answer is, including and especially my own.

Perusing deal sites is one of my hobbies

There’s an active community of like-minded cheapasses to help you along, and you become aware of new products and services. Even as a kid, I was a bargain hunter, and the older, experienced me has now turned this into a skill/game. Because of that, I have a good sense of when to buy something, where to buy it, and how to distinguish a fake deal vs the real deal. This makes me a good shopping companion if you’re trying to curb unnecessary spending, though I’ll  probably guess too low if I’m ever on the Price is Right.
