How to be rich... mind, if not in money.

I grew up hearing these sayings over and over. They are part of who I am. If you ever wondered how we live so happily on one teacher's salary, here are a few pointers.

Eat what you can. What you can't eat, can.

Take all you want. Eat all you take.


Waste not, want not.

A penny saved is a penny earned.

Want in one hand and 'spit'* in the other and see which one fills up first.

Don't waste food. Don't you know there are starving children in Africa?

Make it do or do without.

A fool and his money are soon parted.

Please feel free to comment and I'll add any excellent adages you share to this post.

We like Dave Ramsey's idea to "live like no one else so later you can live like no one else". Not old, but makes a lot of sense.
