I have just come back from the shops and people seemed to be buying ‘stuff’ in a frenzy. I felt quite disheartened surely surely we all have learnt to be a bit more frugal these days.
Well I came back to find this in my inbox and it delighted me. Evidence indeed that people have become more thrifty over the course of this recession and are learning to keep their purses shut and make smarter decisions. Happy frugal Christmas to you all and remember as someone wise once said ‘Children need your presence far more than your presents.’
And if you are having to work overtime to pay off your debts then that’s a bit rubbish isn’t it!
