Often people have said it may be best if we just get back to the basics, make life simple again. The problem is we don't know what the simple life looks like. What are the basics?
Once someone told me she only made her biscuits from scratch. Another in our group wanted to know where to buy "scratch", because she had never seen it on store shelves!
Making things from scratch is getting back to basics, but may not fit our definition of the simple life.
