I love how simple Annie Leonard puts this very complicated process of our consumption.
I was a shopaholic not to long ago so I know exactly what it feels like to wake up and have the list of things to go buy to feel like I got something done or got accomplished for the day.
Recently we have had to give a lot of our "stuff" to Good Will and Salvation Army. Our house even though it has tripled in size just did not fit all the crap we have.
I don't shop nearly as much as I used to. Mostly because we are trying to get out of debt. (Thanks to Dave Ramsey!)
This project is eye opening. Everything we consume has it's own life cycle. We have to be aware of what our impact is on this earth. We have to realize that cheaper does not = better!
