Thrift week is not about bargain prices and sales. It is about being a good citizen by exercising financial responsibility and making decisions about money that will help with long-term financial security. Thrift week is about acquiring wealth in order to not just support ourselves, but to raise up those around us. Thrift week is for everyone.

Cheap: The High Cost of Discount Culture - This is a great book by Ellen Ruppel Shell. We recommend it for both parents and high school students. This book is not just eye-opening, but mind-blowing in terms of thinking about how we shop. "This pervasive yet little-examined obsession with bargains is arguably the most powerful and devastating market force of our time, having fueled an excess of consumerism that blights our landscapes, escalates personal debt, lowers our standard of living, and even skews our concept of time."
