Frugal Friday - Provident Living

Being a more frugal family and getting better at provident living has been a subject that has been greatly on our minds as of late. (Which you may remember from this post.) So in an attempt to be more frugal I have been searching the internet for inspiration. In my searches I came across a great blog Frugalityville.


While reading through some of the quick tips to save you money I came across a post inspired by this little gem of a quote from:

Robert D. Hales from the article “Becoming Provident Providers Temporally and Spiritually,” in the May 2009 Ensign

“Being provident providers, we must keep that most basic commandment, ‘Thou shalt not covet’ (Exodus 20:17). Our world is fraught with feelings of entitlement. Some of us feel embarrassed, ashamed, less worthwhile if our family does not have everything the neighbors have. As a result, we go into debt to buy things we can’t afford—and things we do not really need. Whenever we do this, we become poor temporally and spiritually. We give away some of our precious, priceless agency and put ourselves in self-imposed servitude. Money we could have used to care for ourselves and others must now be used to pay our debts.” 

Stay tuned for a great hair accessory craft straight from my sewing machine to yours.
