Although this blog is focused on cheap and free foods I want to gather some general thrift quotes so as to strengthen the mindset.
"Cannot people realize how large an income is thrift?"
Marcus Tullius Cicero
"Industry, thrift and self-control are not sought because they create wealth, but because they create character."
"We are not to judge thrift solely by the test of saving or spending. If one
spends what he should prudently save, that certainly is to be deplored. But if
one saves what he should prudently spend, that is not necessarily to be
commended. A wise balance between the two is the desired end."
"Thrift comes too late when you find it at the bottom of your purse."
"A bargain ain't a bargain unless it's something you need. "
Sidney Carroll, A
Big Hand for the Little Lady
"By sowing frugality we reap liberty, a golden harvest."
"He who does not economize will have to agonize."
"Beware of little expenses; a small leak will sink a great ship."
