I was really surprised when she said she had to quit high school because they couldn't afford socks! Wow! I did enjoy her video and I am watching the other ones, too.

She reminds a little of one of my Aunts from Europe (the Old country as she called it) who came here just after the Depression. She cooked saving every little bit and she washed the aluminum foil and plastic wrap. She also had an extensive garden nestled into her tiny backyard in the suburbs. That woman could really cook, God Bless her soul! She and my Grandmother come to me in dreams every now and then.

Thanks for the video, it makes me smile :)

I love her too, and I gotta tell ya, what she made looked pretty, pretty good :) She's a great inspiration, and her attitude is awesome! She's a survivor, that is for sure!

Thanks for posting :)
