I live in Greenfield with my husband and cat. I work full time. Frugality and simplicity have been a part of my life long before they became popular and it has made life a lot less stressful. I love volunteering, home improvement/decorating, crafting and gardening.
As I have said in the past, I am not a big Christmas shopper. I purchase my gifts all year long and make gifts, as well. However, I have gotten quite a few "good buys" lately at Kohls, Boston Store and Target but I shop on weeknights and get in and out of the stores quickly. I have encountered good natured sales clerks and basically people (other shoppers) have been courteous and generous. Twice, in the past week, I have had people ask me if I wanted to get ahead of them in line as I had less purchases than they had! People open doors and hold doors for me if I have a large package or packages.
Now - THIS IS what is is all about!
