Tonight I found this piece on Macklemore and his viral hit in a newsletter. I love the message and story behind this song, even though I never listen to pop music on the radio (it's either NPR or country for me these days.....or toddler CDs). I can't help but wonder, is a new generation emerging who really care about consumer impact on the earth and personal budgets? This man grew up thrifting. What will my kids take into adulthood from our frugal home? At age 4 my son has already expressed a desire to drive less because "it is better for the rainforests". Frugal living -- the end results are limitless!
So if anyone gives you a hard time about being frugal, tell them it is hip.
