True. My father, a depression-era survivor, taught me to never, EVER spend what I didn’t have. The best “love lesson” I ever learned. However, in today’s “recession,” I know it’s a challenge to adhere to this principle.

Having just finished reading “Titan: The life of John D. Rockefeller” he followed the same path. Seems like some Americans need to relearn what was lost by the selfish generations that came after the greatest generation.

I completely agree! The stuff is already here! Let’s not only use what we have be be grateful that we have it!

I was always a saver growing up and my brother was always a spender. It is still the same way now and I want to make sure that my son learns better. Hopefully growing up knowing what coupons are at 2 years old will make a difference :)
