When I was in second grade, my Sunday school teacher gave each child in her class a one dollar bill. She told us that we should use that money to go to the grocery store and choose some food for the poor. It was a lesson in helping others.
When I got home, I told my Mom about the assignment. After that, she was on a mission! By the time we got done shopping, I had a paper bag half filled with groceries for the price of a dollar.
Granted, this was the ’80s, so my dollar stretched further than it would today. But the truth is that my Mom knew how to pinch a penny. She’s one of the most frugal people I know. This woman raised five kids on what would be considered a meager income…but we never knew the difference. While we didn’t get the fancy shoes and trips that some of our friends had, it was really a life lesson of need versus wants.
People who know her agree with me. My Mom is a pretty amazing person. She has more energy than most people my own age! She bends over backwards to help people whenever she can. Happy Mother’s Day, Mom!

How have you saved a dollar this Christmas season?
I’m the type of person who tries a DIY project only to end up throwing things out of frustration. So I was a bit nervous about tackling the idea of creating a new Christmas mantel for under $20. But after doing some research, I realized that I could handle it!
It was December 23rd. Hubby and I had spread piles of gifts all across our bed. We wanted to be sure we had all of our bases covered. We carefully counted the number of gifts in each pile. Looks good! But, wait…what happened here? This one child seems to be coming up short.
We counted again, hoping we had somehow missed something. But, no. It was certain. One child was being shorted compared to the others.
