As a child, I was aware of what it meant to be frugal. My grandmother would patch holes in plastic bread bags so she could use them for months. My sisters and I were encouraged to put money into “the trip fund” instead of buying something superfluous like potato chips. Mom sewed all of our clothes – even underwear – and hand-me-downs were commonplace.
Frugality may very well be hereditary.
