  • brandnew ~ I know what you mean. It has made us more frugal and watch our pennies. It has been teaching our children how to shop conservatively and teaches them that they can live without luxury items. They have learned to love to visit our local library again, which I am so excited about, because now they read instead of wasting money to go to the movies or out shopping. It has taught my husband and I how irresponsible we have been with our remaining money once our bills are paid. Now we put it in the savings and use it for more bills and to buy necessities. We love to shop at Goodwill again. There are just so many things that we are learning about ourselves and we are able to spend more time together talking and playing instead of running off in different directions.
    Great question!
