My Mother Said (2)

“Always think what you could do without,
never what you could do with.”

This one smacks of wartime austerity, but sound advice in today’s economic climate too perhaps.

    This reminds me not to complain and that I may have too much stuff. And yet there are those who have less and manage well, and those who have more yet neglect to have even the basics because of guilt – perhaps all from that same time period.

    Interesting how I recently read that more folks are shopping in Charity Shops instead of department stores – Just to make ends meet. And that buying the bruised fruit or misshaped veggie because it costs less works just as well as the more expensive ‘perfect’ edible. Both are possibly going to be chopped, cooked and eaten anyway.
