Kit for President!

My fellow Americans,

I, Margaret Mildred Kittredge, humbly ask my fellow citizens to consider me as a candidate for President of the Unites States of America.

img_8009Many of you know me for my book, The Waste Not, Want Not, Almanac.  These principles form the bedrock of my vision for the United States.  I believe that if we can create a national movement around frugality and self-sufficiency, we can use the money we save to improve the lives and education of Americans, as well as our friends around the world.

img_8012My campaign slogan “A chicken in every coop” perfectly explains my platform.  We will educate Americans on ways to grow vegetables in any climate, raise chickens,  and feed our families nutritious basics.  Aunt Millie will be heading up these initiatives.  My Aunt Millie is known for never wasting a thing, not even sunshine!  She has proposed that the government offer tax incentives to those who install their own clothesline.  We will return home economics classes to schools . . . and Shakespeare!

Growing up in the Depression, I experienced the embarrassment and shame of having clothes that didn’t fit and not enough food to eat.  Inspired by the famous Roosevelt Fireside Chats, Aunt Millie and I will be broadcasting monthly ideas on how to best use what we have.  We may even teach our fellow citizens to make their own bloomers!

If my platform resonates with you, I encourage you to visit my website to join the movement. Remember, a vote for Kit is a vote for a chicken in every coop!

    Who are the other candidates? If were going with the current ones aka Trump, Clinton ect. Then heck yes Kit all the way, but if you have other dolls running. Is Kit Republican, Democrat, or Independent? 🙂

      Kit’s hoping to go viral! In the books, Kit’s thrifty aunt visits. Dad has lost his job and Aunt Millie wastes no time setting up a chicken coop and garden, even though having chickens and selling eggs is embarrassing to people of their class.
      Aunt Millie quotes Shakespeare and never wastes a sunny day to hang some laundry 😃

    Now, after reading this & Jackylina’s latest post, I KNOW I need to get my DD’s Molly, Kit, Felicity & Samantha books out of storage and re-read them all! If only my fall house cleaning was done. . .! Great & fun post that brought back many memories of my childhood helping my Mom raise chickens on the farm. I refused to learn how to ‘kill’ them though, to which my Mother asked what would I do when I grew up, married a farmer and ‘had’ to kill/dress chickens. “Easy, I’m not going to marry a farmer!” That’s one promise I kept too! 😉

      Yes! You must. Clean for 15 min and then read a chapter 😏 Aunt. MIllie is my favorite part of Kit’s books. I relate to her on the teaching and love of literature and the penny pinching. I don’t have any feed sack bloomers though!

      Seems the 2020 candidates need look no further than the character of the historicals when developing their campaign! It’s a good place to start!
