Welcome to the 242nd Festival of Frugality!

Franklin This week’s edition is dedicated to none other than Poor Richard himself, Mr. Benjamin Franklin.  Although mostly famed for lacking the sense to come in out of the rain, Franklin played a major role in establishing industry, thrift and frugality as American values. 

Poor Richard’s Almanack was published from 1732 to 1758 and offered various forms of entertainment including arbitrary weather predictions (weather was very amusing in 1732) and, more importantly, sound financial advice in the form of sayings and poems.  This week enjoy some of our frugal heritage!
