the gathering place for my rants and raves and discourses on the movement to sustainability based on the excesses of others
the Trash vitae
Trash is the editor-in-chiefof an independent Colorado micro-publisher/ design studio. I dabble in digital photography, the lost art of film image making, and guerilla digital video. DrMAC Studios specializesin books and videos on self-reliance, gardening, dumpster diving, urban foraging and living off the excesses of others. This blog documents my daily experiences with the rest of the world
Had a relaxed
SAturday evening. While the Mrs sewed I watched some TLC shows online.
Extreme Cheapskates and Extreme Couponing. DO we do anything in
moderation anymore. cmon.. buying 100 bottles of aspirin, 54 bottles of
Laundry soap, 60 bags of croutons etc while the daughter has 300 bottles of her favorite soda in
the closet. My god. ON the other end this woman hasnt done laundry in 3
years. Washes clothes and stuff in the shower. Another guy reuses paper towels and
buys double ply tp so he can make 2 rolls out of one.. Oy yeah and 200
boxes of cereal is real yumyum food. WHat has become of moderation?
I understand the art of and logicality of frugality and dumpster diving but excess is excess. Growing your own and buying in bulk has always been a mainstay at the 'stead but these people are carrying it a bit too far. Even Trash has limits.
It has been over a month since my last post and for that I apologize. It has been hectic in Babylon and I have been extremely busy. The garden did not produce as expected and I have to supplement. The heat and then the extreme cold did it in. Maybe next year.
