I originate from London, England where rhyming-slang was invented. For instance - Apples and Pears - stairs, Trouble and Strife - wife. Borasic Lint is rhyming slang for the word Skint - as in no money, broke, poor. I am classified as disabled and so have a limited income. I am finding that frugal does not have to be miserable, and I try to turn the situation around and make it a challenge. If I have learned something I am always eager to pass this on, I am also keen to learn new tips and crafts. I have found that being without lots of money can be humbling in a very good way. It does tend to knock you off your high horse and bring you back down to reality. And once at that stage you can take a look around and see the things that really do matter and are important. And more often those things are free - like consideration to others, good manners, love and gratefulness. Or a wonderful sky, a handful of seashells, or the frost on leaves in winter. You look at what is and stop running after what everyone else has.
