  • I'm thrifty, definitely not cheap. I buy things wisely, not just getting the cheapest because it is cheapest.

  • I do not frivolously spend money.  I am not a shopper. However, as a woman who has always had a well paying career, if I want to buy something, I will buy it. I rarely indulge-

  • I'm smart. I don't spend needlessly which, to my friends, seems to mean I'm cheap but the truth is I only buy what I need, save like crazy and then when I find something I really want or need, I have the money. That goes for everything from a new car (for which I have always paid cash) to designer handbags to everything in between. My home is paid for, it is clutter-free with more than enough closet space/storage space since I don't fill it up with needless junk, my kids college costs are paid for, my retirement is funded, and I don't lose any sleep at night worrying about money. My kids have also learned from me and the other thing my friends don't understand is why their teens are always asking for money and mine are not. That's because I taught them the value of a dollar and they have not been spoiled. I'm reaping the rewards and my friends are frazzled. Lessons to be learned there.
