A thought provoking podcast by Pure Green Magazine, featuring Madeleine Somerville, got me thinking this week. I can break down what I have learned into one sentence: possessions are responsibilities.
A couple of years ago, I discovered my affinity and affection for thrifting. The discovery coincided with my engagement to JP; getting married meant a new home, and a new home meant I could finally buy home goods. I found myself occasionally strolling into Talize, Value Village, or The Salvation Army, and I discovered that there is great stuff to be found! After a few very successful thrifting trips, I was hooked.
