The reason of my frugality

February 4th, 2012 at 03:03 pm

I found this video last week and it pretty much sums up one of the reasons I do the things I do with my family's money. I actually live in the same county the featured family is from.

    Wow this story breaks my heart. Even with a savings account things can still get rough. My heart goes out to everyone who maybe in similar situations. This is one of the reasons I'm trying to pay off all my debt.

    Very sad...like so many others. There are so many folks who can't even feed their families any more. We see so many hungry children in our schools. I know it spurs me to save as well as try to donate to a local food pantry.

    This is so scary. I so admire the woman who took them in -- and the family, too, are going through this with such grace.

    I am really worried that the current economic and political situation is going to lead to more of this kind of stuff in the coming years. Living frugally and intelligently really is the only insurance against it, for individuals and families... great post, and I wish you well in your efforts.
