Word of the Year

I've been inspired by several blog posts recently to come up with a Word of the Year.  This post, over at Angel Jem's City Cottage, was really lovely.  Truly there are many things to celebrate.  My Word of the Year is inspired by the desire to celebrate financial independence (retirement may not be just around the corner, but it's peeking out) so I've chosen Thrift.  No spending unless it is essential, moderation when spending is called for (gifts, etc.), and a use it up, wear it out, make it do philosophy.

  1. Such a good word! I think I will strive for it...right after the kitchen remodel is done. I'm going to HAVE to, as it has been very expensive.

  2. That's a great word. I'm focusing on enjoying what I've got this year, too - particularly with regard to make-up and skincare!

  3. Thrifty is a good word. Much nicer than frugal. It has overtones of Beatrix Potter and Mrs Tiggywinkle. She would choose Thrift as her word of the year as well. Thanks for linking to me!
