A friend sent a group picnic invitation via email. I couldn't help but smile when I read this:
"I'd like to suggest in the spirit of environmentalism and frugality that we all bring our own tableware (plates, cups, utensils, etc). That way no one has to buy it, and we reduce our waste."
Isn't her wording lovely?
How many times have I not made a similar suggestion, for fear of seeming cheap? Frugal truly is the OLD green!
