Call me Frugalista

3 Dec

A recent NYTimes Magazine On Language column by William Safire took note of the Oxford dictionary shortlist of words for the year.

Safire’s choice: frugalista : “a person who lives a frugal lifestyle but stays fashionable and healthy by swapping clothes, buying secondhand, growing own produce, etc.” This could become the nom de guerre of the “recession warrior.”

Welcome to my world.
