The $10 life: priceless

Last summer, I wrote this short blog post – $10 life – a highly touching story about a woman called Rose Simpson, downsizing her credit-fuelled suburban life.

Since then, Rose and her partner’s lives have been good. They still work in the video business, only they now do it part-time, and work on projects that interest them the rest of the time. “One, for example, is documenting the creation of a monument to fallen firefighters, which is scheduled for construction in 2012. More than 1,000 firefighters have died in the line of duty, so it’s quite interesting to learn about their stories.” says Rose Simpson of Ottawa.

Another thing that has changed in Rose’s $10 life, is a blog she started. It’s called (surprise, surprise)… The $10 Life: How I lost everything and found myself. That’s right! And she self-describes it as “a combination of slice of life stories, political commentary & humor.”

Congrats to you Rose and keep up the good writing.

    I clicked the link and landed on the latest post which starts “I love my IPhone, love, love, love it” and goes on to talk about her love affair with the phone and its apps.

    Not the most inspiring for a GDP-related link but maybe some better posts in there…

    Try this:

    It’s a personal blog. We’re not taking position on it. Just basically pointing out that some Canadians start expressing themselves and documenting their lives in the context of the recession.
