In these days of the worst recession since the Great Depression many of us are forced to change our ways of spending money. Others want to.
America was not built on going to the mall; our ancestors were frugal. They made things for themselves. When they had to buy food they constantly counted their pennies. (Of course a penny bought a lot more back then.)
This video features a family, the Carters, who had been living beyond their means for years. They finally decided to mend their ways and see how frugally they could live. Watch how they did it. See what you can fit into your life and let us know what you think.
