Frugal Living (Close to Free)

In these times, everyone can use tips like this... 

 

Generally, this is not taught in school or college... 

 

The media is all about spend, spend, and get deeper in debt, so you can spend more. To do anything else, one has to learn how to go beyond this. 

Frugal Living (Close to Free)

That is very true,the kids are only taught nowadays to consume,not to save.

And they are also encouraged to buy on tick and to have as much credit cards as possible.

It's true.  We used to wear hand-me-down clothes from older siblings and cousins. So no problem dgoing to second hand clothing stores (well except for underwear).

 

Nowadays parents by everything new and kids are afraid of getting cooties from second hand clothing stores.

So true, lately you see online or on tv articles about how ppl are saving and not spending, and that hurts the economy. 

 

HURTS THE ECONOMY?  It hurts the rich, we are not lining their pockets!

 

Humans would be far better off by manufacturing less, and growing more food.

WE USE SECOND HAND THINKS AS BOOKS, CLOTHES, ELECTRICAL STUFF AS STOVES, REFGERATORS, WASHING MASHINES ... etc. it is less expensive and in good condition... it is easy to find such stores... hope it will be available as it was before.
