Frugal Subversive Award

Amy, my sweet friend over at Mom Advice, nominated me for this award! And now, I am supposed to pass this on to three bloggers who consistently turn their backs on consumerism to live frugally in a creative and authentic way. Here are my nominees for the award...

1. Meredith is my hero in this area! I'm sure she's been nominated a zillion times already, but I can hardly complete this post without including her. She has mastered the art of making frugality both beautiful and cheerful!

2. Carrie, my sister! She is wonderful at using her resources and being creative about it in the process. When I think of someone who is not into consumerism, I think of her!

3. Mary Ann is another one I think of who uses her gifts to be frugal! She is creative and always seems able to stretch her income farther and farther! Thank you, for your encouragement to try again with CVS - I'm loving all the free goodies! :)

Thank you so much! Glad I posted on a "frugal" topic today! =)

Thanks to our mom for her influence in this area of our lives. Love you both!

Dear Monica,

I am proud of both you and Carrie for all kinds of reasons -- including the way you have taken up the cause of thrift and conserving. I'm sure you will pass it on to the next generation! :)

Love you, Mom
