Words of Wisdom Wednesday: Thrifty

Posted on 02 May 2012 by CharlesN







“A Scout is Thrifty.” Sir Robert Baden-Powell

One of the most difficult things to do is to be thrifty.  It is difficult to save up for something you want to have in the future.  We tend to think about what we can get now.  For example, remember when you bought your second camping tent?  Did you ask yourself whether you really need the tent, or could you have used your first tent for the camp out?  When we save a dollar, we are planning to use that dollar some other day for something you really need or something unexpected in the future.

If you don’t save up what you have today, you will have less to spend tomorrow.  So put a portion of that hard earned money in the jar, in the bank, in your investment accounts.
