Thrifting your way to a better life

How much is your freedom worth?

Now on the whole I’m not a great fan of short stories; in general I feel slightly short changed. There is an element of frustration as the reader sees a simple snapshot in the lives of the characters. But for those of us with a literary bent, here is an absolute must for your weekend reading. A story that comes back to me again and again, and is very apt given my current way of thinking, even though it was written in 1889. Read and enjoy, and if you have read it before, read and enjoy again.

Call me thrifty, prudent, tight or even a miser, but squirreling money away is definitely my thing. The ins and outs of how saving money became a lifestyle, in order to work towards a specific lifestyle change. Follow me on that journey and learn to look at life in a different way.
