8 tips from the depression era that save money
"There is so much we can learn from the trying times of the Great Depression. The resourcefulness was simply amazing. Not only will these skills help us now to be less wasteful and save money, but it also can never hurt to be prepared to have to be more self-sufficient."Stop trying to organize all of your family’s crap. If organization worked for you, you’d have rocked it by now. It’s time to ditch stuff and de-crapify your world.
If you're not using the stuff in your home, get rid of it. You're not going to start using it more by shoving it into a closet.
Use it up, Wear it out,
Make it do, Or do without. ~unknown
A clean house is a sign of a wasted life. ~unknown

So true! I do all of the things mentioned in the article. My dad lived through the Depression. He was always frugal, disciplined, and careful with money. He invested very well, too.

Thanks so much for sharing this - I'd known about most of the things on the list but the one thing I hadn't heard of is ... citrus vinegar (I'm thinking I'll try that one of these days when I buy some oranges 'cuz I "love" the smell of citrus!)
Such a great article and I'm thankful that you shared it with us. (Hugs)
