It doesn't. They all just think I'm stubborn and crazy. My ex says that he
admires me (but wouldn't want to live like me or with me).
My kids have picked up on the environmental stuff, and being frugal; they
appreciate what they have and aren't always screaming for more 'stuff'. I
consider it an accomplishment that I didn't raise uber-consumers.
