I Think I Found Mr. Uber-Frugal!

Months and months ago, I heard about a guy who made a New Year's resolution to spend money only on bare necessities for one year. Thanks to NYC Money, I think I have found him. It looks like he is the boyfriend of author Judith Levine who wrote Not Buying It, My Year Without Shopping. I am number nine on the hold list at the Seattle Public Library. I am so enthralled by this topic, I can hardly wait to read the book.

The practice of voluntary simplicity was born of the idea that American consumerism traps us in the enless cycle of the rat race. Judith Levine writes of her 12-month experience of voluntary simplicity. Once I read the book, I will report back to share my thoughts.
