There is one thing I feel I need to be really clear on. That is, we are not just on “a budget.” This is a common mistake that I have been hearing from people lately.
"oh your on a budget"
"being on a budget is so important when you’re first married"
Sure this is all true. However, this is more of a project. It is a project to see how well one can live, without sacrificing their ideals and tastes, by seeking out opportunities that are culturally rich, support other creatives, help sustain small artisans, and are wallet friendly.
Make no mistakes we are not taking handouts or shopping at Walmart.
Now that this is out of the way, on to the topic at hand. Sometimes you just HAVE to give back. You would have had to been living under a rock to not have heard about the devastation caused by hurricane Irene. Maybe you want to be involved in helping but do not know how. 
If you, like me, were lucky enough to be unaffected than it is a great time to show your support for those that were. Do you like organic farming? If that is your cause and you are on the east coast than you are in luck. Giving back never tasted so good!

On September 25th you can eat out in one of the participating NYC restaurants and 10% of the proceeds will go to Just Food, Grow NYC, or one of the many farms dealing with the consequences of that bitch, Irene. Eat and drink your hearts out with no guilt. This may be the only time you ever hear me promote gluttony.
It would be great to organize something here in SF to help out. If anyone is interested let me know. I would be happy to help.
