This is the store that started everything. One moment of boot weakness in a store in Vermont one year ago turned into a pledge to write one post every day dedicated to Bossy’s debt, and hopefully in doing so Bossy would begin to feel more accountable to her debt, while inspiring others in her situation to join her online support group.
The Poverty Party.
Well. One year is nearly up, and the idea to post every day fell away while the bulk of Bossy’s debt did not. But Bossy has definitely gained accountability to her balance sheet, and Bossy has often felt as though she is accompanied by each and every member of her council when deciding not to purchase something, or deciding to take on an extra painting job in order to pay down another bill.
It may warm your cold council hearts to know Bossy didn’t do any shopping this year in Vermont.
Camping is cheaper than most vacations Bossy can think of, given the reasonable rates of the campground sites and the perpetual discounts in the grocery store where all of the meal ingredients were purchased. But things add up, like the specific ingredients Bossy purchased, such as lobster meant to distract the family from the fact they were sleeping outside and pooing in communal restrooms, and the stack of wood Bossy purchased every few days for the campfire, and all the ice necessary to keep the gin cold. Did Bossy say gin? She meant milk.
In whatever case, may your vacations cost little and feel rich.
