Weekly Cache – 2010, Mar 28
I’m not sure how it happened, but most of my posts this past week ended up talking about frugality in one way or another. It’s an easy topic for me and one that I have lived most of my adult life.
Some comments from a few of my frugal posts got me thinking about why I’m so frugal… Is it because I’m a financial genius? I’d like to think so, but most likely… NOT!
So how did I become so frugal???
My family! Both my parents and grandparents are extremely frugal, so it’s all that I’ve ever known. Could I go into massive debt, going on a buying bing? Yes, it’s possible, but I would definitely feel out of my element doing that.
So for the record, when I talk about being debt-free or write about frugal tips, it’s not that I think I’m more clever then anybody… It’s just that I’ve been taught to think that way ever since I learned to walk.
My Favorite Top 3 PF Blogger Posts For The Week:
Sahmcfo.wordpress.com: “Math Class is Tough!” – My old excuse for debt - sahmcfo’s TV blew up! And instead of going out and buying a new one on a credit card. sahmcfo’s family is trying other activies instead while saving money to buy a new one in cash! Big kudos to her! I have a series that I call “Lemons to Lemonade” which is kind of what they are going!
My Favorite Post from Money Reasons This Week:
My Frugal Apartment – This is my favorite this week because of the nostalgic memories invoked! It also demonstrates how I’ve been frugal most of my life.
Frugality is easier to accomplish when you were raised in such a household. Living in such an environment, the frugal lessons are learned without even knowing it.
Frugality, while painful at first, once you start down that path, it becomes much easier and very rewarding when you finally become debt free!
Think frugal thoughts this weekend!
