Today, frugality – trying again with a January spending freeze. Working off of this model. Though, I always get a little freaked out when I explore the Internets to see how others are living a frugal lifestyle, as there tends to be this scary, we’d rather live in a separatist compound with more guns, vibe. My frugality piece has to do with wanting to erase my families debt load, and the – oh hey, we’re down one paycheck till Sept, thing. Also, I’m trying to break my emotional shopping habit. It’s a little warped how happy I get when I walk in to Target. Also, when teaching, I do this whole unit on Transcendentalism, and get pretty heavy into Thoreau’s ant-materialism – This January I’m working a little harder on practicing what I teach.
