Economy Raises Revenue

My ship won't come in except through the Straits of Economy.

I can increase my wealth by decreasing my wants. I can raise my wages by lowering my expenses. I can have more by wanting less. What I make is not as important as how I handle it. This requires efficiency, planning and the maturity to stick with it.

Economy does not mean no spending - it means wise spending. Frugality the view that a thing not needed is to high at any price. And believe me there are so many things I don't need!

A to the Men - quite true, wise words. There's a ton we don't need, a ton we can save, and a bit we can hold back on. Will power, some juggling and we can make it work!
good post!

So true! Sadly, many of our country's current economic problems are due to people trying to live above their means. How much better we would all be to be satisfied with MUCH less!
