    I always feel bad when I throw out a pair of socks when there is just one little hole in the toe. I mean, the REST of the sock is fine. We are SO wasteful.

    Amish cooperation and thrift

    Right on. I guess it starts with the kids and the culture you’re raised in. Amish kids (and a lot of non-Amish, of course) get it hammered into their heads not to waste.

    I actually live in Poland for a chunk of the year and I notice the tendency among people my age as well over here, more so than in the US. Guess when you grow up with less, it sticks with you…

    I love this story and photo though. I wish I could have witnessed it. Or even lent a hand! Love to see the mutual cooperation that you see so often among the Amish.
