Money and How to Handle It
My mother was very practical concerning money. I don't think I learned her methods. She said once that Daddy never told her how much he made. He just said if she wanted anything, get it. That doesn't sound very practical. She was very practical. My aunt said she stretched a dollar til it squealed. I just try not to want things I don't think I should buy. I have grown very conservative of late. I feel wasteful when I discard a heel of the loaf of bread. I think that is excessive, but I do want to be practical. I remember family members saying "Waste not, want not." I'm not really sure I will still want that heel of the loaf next week, but I may remember that I threw it away.
