The Leap to Cheap

June 8th, 2010 at 08:25 am

Here's a great read for all you frugalites out there:

...and my favorite quote from the story:

"For us," Newman told me, "a true sign of wealth is free time— freedom from drudgery and unwanted commitments."

That's it for me in a nutshell!

    great article - one of my favorite quotes is

    "they've found ways to be wealthy that don't depend on earning more cash or buying more things."

    and

    "thrift is more about knowing what you cherish, then skipping the rest"

    and

    "Someone drops a million dollars on you—how would it change your life? More than 9 out of 10 replies said, in so many words, that money cannot alter their lives."

    Amen! Oh and enough money to buy as much fabric as you want!
