Cheap: The High Cost of Discount Culture

I’m onto a new book:  Cheap:  The High Cost of Discount Culture.  First published in 2009 (Hardcover), Ellen Ruppel Shell targets our fixation on low prices.   Entertaining and meticulously researched, I’m finding Cheap to be an extraordinary read. I’m listening to the audio book and making notes for further investigation.  Bargain hunting will never be the same.  Stay tuned for more highlights…

    1. It is a page turner! I want to buy experiences, rather than “stuff.” I truly believe that we can make a difference. We can’t change many things, but we can inspire possibilities of a better way. We must live it!!! Thanks for your comments.


  1. Spending our money. Joeleen had an interesting article on her Face Book page about sewing. I believe you follow her on Face Book. If you haven’t read it, you should. Very cute! Anyway, in 1949 we sewed our clothes to save money, now we buy clothes to save money. Fabric stores now offer huge discounts, one way to get customers!


    1. I remember when we sewed our clothes – my first attempt was an bluish grey dress. There is an amazing history behind retailing. More posts on the way.
