My First Blog

Yes, that's right, this is the first time I have ever blogged. A newbie, a virgin, a beginner. I am 63 years old and have spent my life pinching pennies & stretching dollars. I always thought I should write a book about all my hints & ideas. I never did and regret it to this day. This morning as I was having my coffee I thought, why not share my hints and lifetime of experiences in a blog. So here I sit. Blogging....

With our current depression (yes, I call it a depression-not a recession) it would seem that people could use a little help in stretching their money as far as they can. Some of my ideas may sound really foolish & a lot of them are things that have been around for a while but you can always pick of a good tip or two. I still do everyday. Listen to the older generation who lived through the "great depression" and they still practice the habits they had to use during that time. Our younger generation have always spent way beyond their means & have always lived in a throw away society. Perhaps this is a good time for them to learn how to make do the old fashioned way. It is actually fun thinking of ways to be frugal & save a dollar or two. It always makes me feel good. Recycling is now the "in thing" so this might be a good time for me to share my thoughts and ideas.

My plan is to offer a new idea every day. Come back often & see what ideas you can pick up or share ideas with me. What fun! I can't wait to get started!
