Thriftiness: A Lensography
My Lenses on Thriftiness and Saving Money
I am the queen of thrifty living and I have written a number of Squidoo articles, or lenses, about thriftiness. If you are looking for ideas and tips to help you save more money, you will find it here!
In today's economy, when everything is going up except our incomes, it is essential to be as economical as possible in the way we run our households. With so many people being downsized, companies closing, and budget shortfalls, no job seems secure in this day and age. So, it is important that we save as much as possible when we do have an income, to prepare for that unexpected emergency such as a job loss, illness or other catastrophe that could affect our ability to earn money in the future. Many experts recommend having enough money in the bank to survive for six months. In this economy we probably need even more than that!
If you are looking for some helpful suggestions from someone who has been forced to live frugally for a number of years, you will appreciate my articles. I have had to learn some of life's lessons the hard way. Hopefully, I will spare you some of the pain that my family has had to endure when I share our experiences.
