Thrift Takes Creativity ~ Words of Wisdom

When G. K. Chesterton originally wrote, "Thrift is poetic because it is creative; waste is unpoetic because it is waste," it was in the context of upcycling trash--using everything you can.  Upcycling does take creativity.  Being thrifty with a budget also takes a creative thought process.

I often say, "we need to get creative to lower our utility bills," or some other area of our budget.  When it comes to groceries a creative menu can go a long way in reducing weekly grocery budget. The use of sales, printable coupons and money saving apps for grocery shopping [like Ibotta and SavingStar] takes creativity in combining the three to create a perfect deal.

So the next time you want to work on saving money,  let your imagination run wild and see how creative thrift can be poetic.
