It’s true that some of the best things in life are free. In a time where everyone is cutting back on expenses where they can, I thought I’d reflect on some of my favorite things that cost very little (at least monetarily; they may cost some time and effort). Here’s a quick list, in no particular order:

-A bed with freshly laundered sheets
-A great cup of coffee
-Homegrown tomatoes
-Watching SEC football–especially Alabama football
-Leaves changing color in the fall
-Baby giggles
-A Saturday with no set plans, where I don’t have to be anywhere at any particular time
-Coming home to a crockpot percolating with some yummy soup or stew
-Taking a nap on a rainy Sunday afternoon
-Getting a really good scalp massage from the shampoo girl at the salon
-Hearing the crack of a bat at a baseball game
-Diving into a new book

What would you add to the list?
