Great NEWS! "Frugalista"is an Oxford University Press finalist for "Word of the Year 2008." This is AWESOME!  Here’s what Oxford wrote:

frugalista
– person who leads a frugal lifestyle, but stays fashionable and
healthy by swapping clothes, buying second-hand, growing own produce,
etc.

Teehee! Oxford even linked back to the blog! The only thing I would have added to the definition was that frugalistas enjoy good AND cheap wine! I kid! I kid! Frugalistas are so en vogue! Hypermiling, which is the act of using various tactics to get more mileage out of your gas, beat frugalista out for word of the year! I  think frugalista is better and the New York Times! agrees. In his column, journalist William Safire said that the word rings his bell. Yes, frugalistas have that effect on people. ;)

What’s your word of the year?
