#1307² BEHIND THE BLOG² – S5 E11 – CHEAP IS LOVE

Cheap is love!

I can still remember owning a t-shirt with this slogan printed on it without actually noticing that it was printed on it. My girlfriend at that time noticed, of course she did and told me when not to wear it. “Told me” is a silly description, she demanded it.

Cheap is love! Not that this would describe my life in any way, just keep the Porsche project thing in mind. But cheap is love has still found its place into my life. Wondering about it today, it was always there. This tendency to save up resources whenever I can.

It’s silly to say that I have this from my granddad, but I am getting told that he was the same. I was only five when he passed away, so better don’t ask me if it’s true or not, but I love to figure out a way that is cheap, if not for free. We could use this infamous quote right now. “The best things in life are free. The second best are very expensive.” from Coco Chanel.

But it’s not the truth. It’s always a lifestyle choice. The second best things in life can also be cheap, or the third, or whatever you want. There is always a choice we have to take. What do we want? When do we want it?

Of course my interpretation of cheap is love is a bit faulty. I look at the big picture in which a Porsche 911 can be less expensive than a normal car if you just drive less. Remember, it’s about our decisions not the world around us.

See you next time!
