The "low end" philosophy is making the best use of resources, whether that's time, products, or the money we spend on them, and the goal of Low End Living is best summarized as living more for less.
That puts us somewhere between cheap skinflints and conspicuous consumption - exactly where most of us live.
Whether you're living economically out of necessity or because you have other plans for your money (such as buying a house or retirement), we hope Low End Living will help you make better choices and become a smarter consumer.
