Just a little (link) love: fools at the table edition

October 12, 2017

Financial privilege exists. Recognizing it and how it works in your life means you can learn where you too can make an impact for others.

Can Ethical Shopping Ever Be Budget Friendly? Kara asks a question that I’m trying to answer with my own shopping choices. The fact is that so far, in my experience, the cheaper the item, the more likely it wasn’t made ethically or that the company engages in really iffy behaviors. An overnight change isn’t feasible but we do the best we can, one decision after another.

Justice Sonia Sotomayor posed a very simple inquiry that cut to the core of the case: “Could you tell me what the value is to democracy from political gerrymandering? How does that help our system of government?”

SP asked: What percentage of your assets are in home equity? And I ask – are you comfortable with your percentages? I would like our percentages if they were based on a much higher net worth and less debt.

The Rock Test: A Hack for Men Who Don’t Want To Be Accused of Sexual Harassment – this is pretty fantastic.

Little Green Revolution bid good-bye to a parent recently. I’d never heard of the Swedish art of death cleaning before but it’s what I’m practicing now, looking for ways to stay on top of our clutter, getting our financial and personal affairs in order, making sure that JuggerBaby will be cared for if we pass suddenly any time soon.

Soooo many fools, y’all….

  3. Looking forward to reading the post “Can Ethical Shopping Ever Be Budget Friendly”. I struggle with this because I want every item I do purchase to be ethically sourced but sometimes funds dictate a different path.

    Have a good day 🙂

      It is hard to buy completely ethically but I firmly believe that every change we make for the better counts, and as we improve our financial positions, we can make more of the good choices. Thanks for stopping by!
