This blog comes from Britain and Lulastic (I’m pretty sure that’s not her real name. J ) writes with humour and honesty about being what I’d call a “granola”. I promise you, you will laugh out loud as you read some of her escapades.
She’s exploring alternatives to shampoo. She has raised a “nappy-free” daughter (that’s an interesting post to read, you’ll find the link in the ‘about’ section). She dumpster-dives and has found some fabulous things doing so (search her “anti-swank” blog post for a hilarious story about taking a couch home on the bus.) She has started blogging about thrift-routes in England, so if you’re there or going to go there, you’ve got a ready-made thrift plan available to you.Her post titled The Politics of Thrift is intelligent, well written and thought-provoking.
So that’s what I’m sharing with you today – I encourage you to follow this informative and uplifting blog.
And now I’d like some input from you. Next Wednesday, in my role as Communications Writer for Mennonite Central Committee BC, I have been asked to make a presentation to MCC’s Thrift Shop managers. I will have them captive in a room – what would you like me to tell them? What would you like me to ask them? What encouragement would you give?
