Another consumerist hobby that I discovered is frugal living. The frugal living website a ran across yesterday starts with a long list of items you need to buy in order to be more frugal. I didn’t get to the end of the shopping list, so I never discovered the secrets of frugality the shopping is supposed to open up to you.
I always thought that most dogmatic and preachy people ever were reformed smokers and recent religious converts. But it turns out that the frugal living folks are easily the most smug and condescending bunch of all.
