Food Inc. Wow. I thought about watching it 4 days ago when I was at Anna’s. I decided to sleep instead. I clicked on it yesterday when I restarted my Netflix account. I told my sister, whom I was on the phone with, that I had to go because I was going to watch a documentary. “Which one?” she asked, “It’s called ‘Food Inc.’ I told her. “Haven’t you already watched that?” ” No, but I’ve tried to.” “Really? I could have sworn you’ve watched that before…but okay, well enjoy yourself.. Love you. Bye.” “I guess it hasn’t stuck yet.”
How right she was. How wrong I was. Not only had I seen it, but I am absorbed and CONSUMED all the information provided to me within that documentary that since first viewing that movie less than 2 years ago, I have completely altered my lifestyle and the way I go about purchasing my food. Although I may not have realized it, the content in that movie transformed my life.
I started this journey almost two years ago and have switched to shopping absolutely nowhere but local and Costco. Even Costco, is on its way out eventually, I think. I love it so much…but maybe I don’t really need it. Clothing? That will be the greatest challenge for me. Finding good, high quality clothing that fits me has always been a challenge. Right now, I shop at Costco for just about everything I wear. Should I revert to shopping only at thrift stores?
Hmm…not a bad idea. And cheaper.
