Today a trip with two friends in our local forest fouraging for mushrooms. We ate homemade sandwiches for lunch. No money spent today.

Linda, how did you learn to tell the edible ones from the poisonous ones?

Today a trip with two friends in our local forest fouraging for mushrooms. We ate homemade sandwiches for lunch. No money spent today.

Linda, how did you learn to tell the edible ones from the poisonous ones?

I starting simple with a mushroom book and learning 1 or 2 new species per year, go out in the forest a lot and pick them a lot. Double checking with book, internet, and preferably another person. Then you'll get very good and certain at these species. I did this for about 14 years.

Last year when I knew about 15 species, I did a 40 hour course (two weekends from Friday evening to Sunday evening) to learn the 120 most common species (edible and poisonous). The course was very reasonably priced. It was difficult to absorb all the information on the course, as I new so little to start with. The whole winter I studied the course book several times and read about the same species in other mushroom books.
The whole summer and autumn I have been offered and attended several free repetition courses where we go out to pick and discuss the findings with an expert afterwards. From June on I have spent most of my free time in the weekends searching for mushrooms and trying to give determine their names afterwards.
We have a facebook group for people like me where we lay out pictures as exercices and we need to provide the name and a good description. There are experts and a biology teacher in the group who correct us.
Tomorrow morning I will do an official test. If I pass that test I will be allowed to officially check other people's mushroom baskets. I think that will become my little hussle as you can actually receive some tax free money (approx 1100 USD/year) for manning the public "have your mushroom basket checked" events on Sunday afternoon, or for manning the digital app where people can send in pictures of their findings on their phone, or for giving guided mushroom tours. I was already invited as an assistant for such a tour, but was on vacation at that point.

Non-apple brand lighting chargers

I have a genuine Apple charger at home and at work, but my husband tends to leave chargers in hotel rooms so I buy him cheap colourful ones. The rule is that the white one is not allowed to leave the house.
I use to travel a lot for work.  I found that thick (wide?) bright / neon yarn can be tied to small things that might be left behind and takes up virtually no room in a bag.   The more expensive the thing, the longer the piece of yarn I put on it.

I also bought him a three-metre lightning cable to leave next to his bed so of course he ended up putting it in the car. >.<

My apple ones keep breaking, which is super lame, so cheap replacement ones with woven cords make me VERY HAPPY :)
I had problems with earbuds breaking.  And some of them cost way more than charger cables.  I bought some liquid goop that is for repairing the coating on dishwasher racks.  It goes on thick and dries stiff - neither to rigid or flexible.    I haven't had earbuds break where I put the coating on.

Fixing anything that is broken:
DW wanted to toss out my 25 yr. old vac a couple of times but I keep resuscitating it with replacement parts or self-manufactured parts.
Also fixed our ancient oven a couple of times before it gave up the ghost
Just fixed a recalcitrant Dremel tool that I tried to sell at a yard sale. Man that felt good!

Using (or seeing others use) anything I built myself (sailboat, canoe, chairs, kids wagon, cutting boards, futon and too many others to list here).

Very interesting, thanks! I have noticed that foraging for mushrooms is a weekend hobby for some of my European friends, and I was curious.

Sleep. Getting enough of sleep.

+1!
It's a pity that this is so challenging to do on normal working days. But I've learned to go to bed pretty early (around 10pm) so that I can get my 8 hours of netto sleep.

- Going to bed really early (like 8:30)

- Getting up early and having the quiet world to myself for a couple hours. I do my best thinking early in the morning, and I feel the happiest.

Indeed, to add to this, I feel an almost limitless optimism in the early AM.

Walking to get errands done rather than getting in my car.

Buying my free Kindle book from the Samsung book deal on my phone. I can choose from 4 books every month. Usually only 1-2 sound interesting. I send them to my Kindle and read them there, as I don't like reading a book on a phone.

walking into a warm space from the cold.
microwaving my homemade frozen meal (like lentil soup), and the satisfaction of knowing that I just finished "cooking" dinner
watching hummingbirds outside the window
walking outdoors around the neighborhood and catching a cool breeze
watching autumn leaves fall
sitting outside and listening to the rustle of tress and the chirping of birds
taking deep breaths and resetting to the gratitude of being alive

Figuring out a new recipe for the repertoire.  I get a good sense of accomplishment coupled with tasty results, double win.

Played around with braised pork shoulder with roasted carrots and sweet potatoes.  Pork shoulder is just over $2/lb and I was every bit as happy with the results as when we did a beef pot roast for 3x more.  Spent about $15 on a big batch with 5 lbs of meat that covered 3 meals for 3 people, and made 4 lunches.  Really good paired with a almost no-kneed loaf for sopping up juices with.

Nice question LJ! BOOKS! And Netflix (the only service I pay for but I loop in the others which let me watch One Mississippi or Bojack Horseman or Younger or whatever I am slowly enjoying). And choir, which is $100 for a 4.5 month season. Movies, which I go to free. Pay what you will museum nights. Walking in the park. The subway (so many people co-existing). Walking around Brooklyn. Someone mentioned blankets so I'll say throws, they make me so cozy (I am usually cold). My plants even though I don't take super good care of them! Cat and jungalow accounts on instagram. The $2.50 empanadas from the empanada cart...

This.

There's nothing like the sound of their giggles when they're having fun together. Makes me smile just thinking about it.

Hiking. I just met someone recently and we got to talking about the places we like to travel to. After a bit, she commented that pretty much every place I talked about included the word, "hiking". I may just be a wee bit obsessed.

I'd also like a lot of other outdoor activities - but really avoid getting into activities that cost money. Other than canoeing. That's my other obsession.

The best sound in the world!! :) Only to be topped by the whole family laughing together.

I also extend that goodwill outside my family circle. I know people often grumble about noisy kids, annoying teens or whatever. If they're smiling and laughing, the noise never bothers me and never fails to make me smile.

Poetry. You can read all the wonderful poetry you want totally for free. And this is the golden age of poetry reading, in America, because poetry is so obscure that you can strike up friendships with your favorite poets. Honest, you just find them online and email them to say, "Goddamn this was an excellent poem, I loved this, and these lines have just been ringing in my mind for days!" and they WRITE BACK TO YOU and say thanks, I wasn't sure about this part, did that work? And you say, you bet, but what the hell was that wheelbarrow doing in that other part? And you're off.

This is not the way it works in more popular arts -- you're probably not going to be making friends with your favorite recording artist or film director any time soon -- but it's how it works in poetry.

Wow, that is so true! I never thought about that. I always focus on the fact that I can't own the Mona Lisa but I can own the works of Shakespeare. How is the written word so damn affordable and often free? Amazing. :D

Dual-zoned heated mattress pad! (So good for the marriage.) And the room doesn't need to be kept as warm if I can get into a toasty bed.

I love it too. I just forgot to put it on last time I changed the sheets. It is now laying in the bedroom to put on at the next occasion which will be soon. We only turn it on 45 minutes before bedtime or so.
