Why it’s cool to be cheap
August 13, 2009
I’ve been noticing lately how everyone is cutting back on expenses. Not only are they reducing their spending, but they are talking about how they are reducing their spending. It’s almost like it’s cool to be cheap now.
I used to never say I couldn’t afford something or turn down lunch with a friend because I needed to save money. I felt too embarrassed. Now, I do it all the time, and I hear a lot of people saying the same thing.
If there is anything good to come out of this recession, maybe this is it. Maybe people will finally start having an open and honest conversation about their money…not only with themselves, but with others around them.
