And today, I'm just gonna model good behavior and steal recycle tips from none other than Oprah.  

What?  Don't judge.  She may still be a complete closet case.  And she did single-handedly up and snatch the presidency right out of Hillary's hands and turn it over to Obama on a platinum platter.  But the woman IS filthy rich -- like, could buy her own Warren Buffet to be her personal cabana boy kind of rich -- so, these MUST be the secrets to her success:
  • Use the same cups over and over.
  • Don’t run the dishwasher unless it’s absolutely full.
  • Don’t throw clothing or shoes away, especially leather shoes. Get shoes resoled or reheeled at a local cobbler when necessary (also helps small businesses).
  • Buy clothes at secondhand, consignment, or resale shops.
  • Put power strips on your tv to turn everything off when you go to bed or leave for the day. Standby power drains energy.
No, I can't see her at ThriftTown either, but you know she'd send Gayle in a heartbeat to pick up some skinny jeans for the next time she cycles down to a size 10, so there you go.

Now, go on. Be a productive earthling today.  And leave me the hell alone.  I'm still PMSing.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks Oprah needs to get over herself!!
