It seems as if the world is becoming more expensive by the day. There may not be a solution for cutting costs, but there’s not a shortage of ways to describe something as being costly, and Pacific Northwesterners are credited for adding ‘spendy’ to the canon of words that describe something as being too expensive. There is nothing too big or too small for the use of this adjective. Whether you’re looking to purchase a new home or a new cup of coffee, price inflation has infiltrated the Pacific Northwest so much that we are coming up with new words to show our dismay. Hopefully our fortune turns, and the world becomes less spendy for us all!
The first edition of each month will feature the definition of a term popularized or heavily used in the Pacific Northwest.
