Thrifty instincts run through her family

"You'd never guess Rhonda Baker Michaud's husband makes more than $100,000 a year. After all, she admits to trash picking, and he wears shirts from the thrift store, as does their 17-month-old son.

But, says Michaud, it all makes for a better standard of living, as well as smart green thinking - reusing instead of sending things to the landfill."
