The New “Slow” Movement….Slow Shopping

The New “Slow” Movement….Slow Shopping

I get a little excited every time a new "slow" movement comes along. I thought Slow Food -- linking enjoyment of food to sustainable communities -- was the coolest when it came over from Italy more than a decade ago, and the concept of paying a little more time and attention to our communities, our money and a slew of other daily habits always made sense too me. Whether I'm eating dinner with my family or choosing where my 401K money should go, I'm drawn to the idea that slowing down to consider and savor will lead to more satisfying choices. (Full disclosure: I'm the most deficit-disordered multi-tasker I know.)
