Over at The Frugal Girl, Kristen recently wrote about honesty and frugality. This article made me think because I agree with the sentiment that if God provides for all our needs, we can be super duper honest without worrying about provision.
I personally don't download illegally, because I have an awesome husband. I'm keen [to learn] to be honest, but downloading movies or shows online is where I haven't felt much conviction up to now. Hulu means we have plenty to watch legally without having a TV, and Redbox has made renting movies really easy and cheap ($1). But as we move to South Africa, I'm afraid that our options will dwindle: no Hulu, no DVD player (aaah, the skinny MacAir), no TV (and we don't want a TV because I lack self-control). But the occasional movie or TV show is something I really look forward to.
How have you dealt with illegal downloading? Am I destined to become inadvertently more hippy crunchy and not watch anything ever? South Africans, is there a service where you can pay to download movies or TV shows legally? Should we have stayed in Boston one more month so that we'd get to watch more episodes of Modern Family? A Netflix subscriptions wouldn't work in South Africa, right?
As you can tell, I'm thinking about all the important things with our move.
