…Get the Good Stuff

Monday, July 26th, 2010

Good stuff. We’ve talked about what the good stuff is. We’ve talked about using the good stuff. We’ve established that the good stuff is whatever we want it to be, whatever makes us feel good. We’ve agreed that using the good stuff is important, fun, is…good.

But there is one, pretty major issue we haven’t addressed. What happens if we don’t have good stuff? And lots of people don’t, not by our definition. For whatever reason, they are surrounded by things about which they are indifferent. And indifferent has no place in a Champagne Life.

There are two basic, yet vital, rules to accumulating good stuff. First, start small. We can’t forget that whole beer budget part of our Champagne Life. Second, don’t bring anything into your home that you don’t love. While you may not be able to afford the 1000 count sheets or the Waterford crystal, that’s okay. Remember, this isn’t about impressing anyone or keeping up with anybody, including the Joneses. So you don’t have to settle for anything you don’t absolutely love, at any price. Ever. If it doesn’t make you happy, it’s not your Champagne Life.

Because happy is what it really boils down to, isn’t it? A happy life is a Champagne Life.

Enjoy ~
