Gaining my religion
The gospel he preaches is about taking your purchasing power to your local mom and pop stores rather than big box and chain stores. I can agree with the philosophy, which I explained in an earlier post, but it's a number of factors, ranging from economics to environment to sustainability issues. All of J.D.'s posts from yesterday seem to touch on this, but I especially like the article on how he explains the internal debate that everyone must face when making purchasing decisions. In fact, just go check out his entire blog. I've recently gotten into the habit of keeping up with a few blogs, and Get Rich Slowly is one of those that finds interesting topics and is well written. In fact, I think I'm going to add it to my blog roll right now... well, I mean, after I finish writing this.
