It has been interesting (and sad) to think about the state that our economy is in right now (and has been getting into for a long time). I think it creates the need, even more so, to become more simple, frugal, and green in our ways.
I read this post this morning and thought I'd pass it along to you to read as well. Interesting thoughts on one person's journey, getting back to some of the things her parents did during the years of the Great Depression and ever after. Plus, there are some great ideas in becoming more simple, cheap and green in our own ways.
