I'm A Freegan...How About You?

June 23rd, 2007 at 06:39 am

I came across this article about Freeganism. And I think I have finally found a name/way to label something I love,lol.

Who are/What is a Freegan you ask?
Freegans are people who employ alternative strategies for living based on limited participation in the conventional economy and minimal consumption of resources. Freegans embrace community, generosity, social concern, freedom, cooperation, and sharing in opposition to a society based on materialism, moral apathy, competition, conformity, and greed.

While I dont go through dumpsters, or pick through trash on the side of the road (not knocking anyone who does), I get a REAL thrill out of finding items or getting items for free. The other day I was looking around my bedroom and realized that everything in my bedroom, except my clothes, iron and humidifier, I had gotten for free. My queen size bed (including headboard), 27inch tv, dresser with mirror, night stand, ironing board, and chair were all things I found or someone was giving away and offered to me.

Realizing this, it makes me wanna cry when I think about things that I've thrown away in the past that someone else really could have used. But I am determined to live this lifestyle to decrease waste. Our earth needs all the help she can get!

Queen of Free Strikes AGAIN

June 1st, 2007 at 08:14 am

A co-worker must have been sensing my need for more free stuff. She sent out an email with about 3 pages of links to free stuff. I got a sippy cup from Juicey Juice
and a bowl from beechnut. Ooh can't forget the "Hot Mama Driving" car decal.

I have also been thinking that I need a carrier for my son...sure enough I get a Baby Bjorn for FREE.

May was a good month.

June. I have a budget meeting on the 22nd. I need to order a new credit report. I am seriously considering a DMP.
