The sixth need, which Maslow really missed to mention in his famous ‘hierarchy of needs’, is the woman’s handbag. It is universal acknowledged that a woman needs a handbag. Jonathan Jacobson, the Booker prize winner for 2010, had noticed this ‘extraordinary’ need and he claimed he is going to spend his £50,000 prize money on a handbag for his wife by saying “have you seen the price of handbags!!!” Exactly for the above reason I’ve got one of them ( in a quite reasonable price) with a’ rainbow colours’ to fit every occasion and every colour combination of my outfit. No need to buy a second one. Trust me, it is not bad idea and you are going to save a lot of money.
It is nice to have the newest and fancy brand of equipment in you Kitchen, however, if you’re really want to do a decent job with maximum efficiency you need a proper tool with the finest ergonomic design. This 1 Euro lemon squeezer ( in the picture) is the finest squeezer I’ve ever used. It has exactly the shape of a lemon, and you can get literally the last drop from the lemon. I found it in a ‘bakaliko’ in Athens 12 years ago and so far I’m carrying it wherever I live. As much as I’ve searched all these years, I couldn’t find a replacement anywhere. If you notice anything similar, please let me know.
Flowers bring life into the house but at the same time it can be a quite expensive hobby.
An alternative is the toy elephants (picture below) or something equivalent( it depends on your resourcefulness and sense of humour 😉 . They can replace flowers for a while by changing their position from now and then and creating a lively corner.
And last but not least, get a proper picnic basket and feel a bit posh by making picnic somewhere nice , either this is in your garden or in the country. I am pretty sure, it will cost you less than having dinner in a restaurant and you’re going to have more fun. It works as well as as decorative object later.
Winter is coming and we must be really resourceful to enjoy life !
p.s and most of all imaginative 😉
