The stereotypical bon vivant is someone who can afford the best (or has generous friends), but that&rsquo;s not the only way. You can be a bon vivant on a budget.</p></blockquote> <blockquote><p>What is &ldquo;the best&rdquo; anyway? Your own tastes play the biggest role, but the tastes of family and friends have a strong influence. To a lesser extent, so do the tastes of opinion leaders, celebrities, experts, and others &mdash; even fictional characters. Because of this, appreciating the finer things in life makes you vulnerable to serious &ldquo;keeping up with the Joneses&rdquo; issues. </p></blockquote> <blockquote><p>There are a lot of ways to fight this.</p></blockquote> <p>If that sounds interesting, click on over to Get Rich Slowly and take a look at <a href="http://www.getrichslowly.org/blog/2009/05/18/how-to-live-a-rich-life-on-a-budget/">How to Live a Rich Life &mdash; On a Budget</a>.</p> <br /><div id="custom_wisebread_footer"><div id="rss_tagline">This article is from <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/philip-brewer">Philip Brewer</a> of <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/guest-post-live-a-rich-life-on-a-budget">Wise Bread</a>, an award-winning personal finance and <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/credit-cards">credit card comparison</a> website.
