Show and Tell : Ideas for the Recession

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 😉
