The frugal organic path...

We live in a fast-paced, plastic world. Like many of us, I long for a simpler life, closer to the earth, closer to life. As I have sought this out, I have learned more and more about the problems of the world we live in, and about the toxins and threat to life that are all around us. And, like so many others, my life is occurring against a backdrop of near poverty, characterized by lack of access to sufficient financial resources to pursue all that I might like to pursue.

Musings on a Wicker Basket

We are cleaning the bedroom and bathroom today. On the bed are two large baskets -- both wicker. I grew up with plastic laundry baskets. Now -- I only purchase wicker baskets.

A decade ago I didn't have a clue what "organic" means as currently used. I noticed that there was now a small selection of "organic" produce in the supermarket -- veges are veges! I thought -- and the organic ones were more expensive. (My frugal side always comes out when shopping.) I have learned a great deal in the ensuing decade.

Where, in this endless cycle of consumption, is there room for frugality?
