Anyone got any tips on not giving a **** about the acquisition of wealth?
Yes.
Stop caring about how you stack up in life compared to others.
Stop caring what others think of your life.
Get off insta/fb and any willy waving socials.
See how the really unfortunate live by volunteering or travelling or spending time with those who are ill.
Start to enjoy the small pleasures, coffee while the world goes by, a sunset, a hike, the ocean walks etc.
Start the morning thinking of 1 thing you're happy/grateful for and not what you're missing out on.9
Play. Find things that arent expensive to do as a hobby.

Ultimately if you're happy within yourself, what you do and you have health and family, money is icing on the cake. I've had money and been really really unhappy. I've had pretty much no money and been really happy. Now I've got a balance after realising money wont make me any happier (well itll buy me holidays and a nice car but I'm happy with my average house, my bust up s40, holidays in the UK and my family).

100%, although I don't do well at many of those things. The gratitude one is the winner. I've also noticed that the less attention i give to FB and all that time-vampire social stuff the more content I am.

I'd also add "Don't read the Brexit thread"...

Correct don’t read it, participate!
You were getting stuck in a day or so ago......loved it ;)
Still too blinkered for my tastes. I refuse to engage in discussions with anyone who only has one perspective. It's boring. Unfortunately too much political debate seems to offer little ability to acknowledge that more than one opinion can exist, especially when debating the unknown. Perhaps we should start a religion thread. :D

Any use to anyone?

One Pound One Way - here is how
No catch or hidden costs, your rental will indeed cost you £1, but feel free to add any extras.

From time to time, we need to move vehicles between various stations, which can get expensive. If you can pick up and drop off the car where we need it, you can use the car for a whole day for just £1*- win-win!

With over 190 routes to choose from, there is £1 One Way rental for everyone!
