The one thing I could never abide, however, was the way she would mix non-fat dried milk with real milk to stretch it. Terrible!

My mother was a child of the depression and my father was born and raised in Brazil. Even after they became quite affluent, they couldn't quite shake their frugal ways. My dad would drive a brand new Mercedes, but there was no way he was going to pay someone to wash it or change the oil when he could do it himself. I am kind of the same way. Oh well....

STJ!
Not a darn thing wrong with being frugal.

I need to take a few lessons from your Dad.

I generally am frugal, but if I see something I have really been pining for, I start getting out of control. Can't believe I have been able to control myself this long to not get another Doberman.
