La Frugalista

The NYTimes has a name for people like me, and I finally have a comeback for everyone in my family who thinks I'm just plain cheap.

frugalista (def): a person who lives a frugal lifestyle but stays fashionable and healthy by swapping clothes, buying secondhand, growing own produce, etc.

Well, I don't know if I have the "fashionable" part going on, but I definitely got the "frugal" part right.
