Overhead . . .and Seen

Two notable things I overheard and saw this past weekend:

Overheard: "I take cash, check, and credit cards . . ." - homeless guy in downtown Philly

I thought the comment from the homeless guy was pretty fun. I just thought I'd share that.

Seen: My two seatmates on my flight from Philly to the Bay Area both were reading library books.

I was pretty shocked to see both of my seatmates reading library books since I don't think I've ever seen anyone else on a plane reading a library book, except for me and my spouse. I haven't been to the library for a while so I'm wondering if it's more crowded now. Is all this talk about practicing frugality really taking root? Or do people feel that it is more acceptable to be frugal, so they're more open about it?

haha, that is awesome. i got some not-as-fun homeless approaches this week! i'd be more tempted to shell out a dollar or two for your guy :)

Hey, I just ventured into my local library for the first time ever yesterday! Hard-core book-buying addict turned library borrower. Frugal is totally the new black ;)
