The Non-Consumer Advocate in The Oregonian

by Katy on October 8, 2009 · 7 comments


Click here to read an article about The Non-Consumer Advocate that’s running in today’s Oregonian newspaper.

A special thanks to the delectable Anne Laufe, who has now interviewed me three times. I like to think of her as my own personal journalist, everyone should get one!

Great article! And Katy, you’re doing a great job educating people about frugality. Saving money while saving the planet’s resources is the way to go! I find that being frugal actually enriches one’s life rather than leaving them feeling deprived.

Congratulations, Katy! A really well-written, detailed article.

Good article. It really gets the point across that the steps that you take aren’t about deprivation; they actually improve the quality of you and your family’s life.

A great thing too is that one benefit of you sharing your adventures in frugality here, is that whatever small steps you inspire others to take, are helping to reduce the impact of consumerism even beyond the steps that you take for you and your family. It has definitely helped me to be a bit more conscious of it.
