What Makes a Saver?

Prairie Eco-Thrifter

Those affected by our recent Great Recession have had the benefits of saving reinforced as well. As a retiree, I started out as a saver, unsure how the finances were all going to work out (especially since I retired during the last recession). If we truly be either saver or spender, what makes us one or the other? Are we predestined from birth to be one or the other as at least one study proposes? Or is it our earliest environments that mold us to be one or the other?

Stay the Course Financially

Prairie Eco-Thrifter

When the Great Recession began in 2008/2009, my boss at the time (a Vice President of the company) and her spouse consulted their financial adviser to see what they should do. They asked him what would likely cause us to come out of recession. The world wide recession made us all (either of necessity or by choice) a bit more frugal.

Adult Children Living At Home – How To Approach It

Prairie Eco-Thrifter

While there are many reasons why adult children could be living with their parents, right now most of the blame falls on the economy and the recession. The recession has made it more difficult than usual for new graduates to find gainful employment, especially with experienced workers finding themselves unemployed for months or even years. If you are a parent with adult children living at home with you, you aren’t alone.

10 Money-Saving Tips For Your Wedding

Prairie Eco-Thrifter

With the economy the way it is and with most people affected by the recession, they will definitely understand that you want to keep costs at a minimum by having a small wedding party. This is the moment you have been anticipating. You got engaged and now you are marrying the person you love. You want the wedding of your dreams, but then you have to consider reality. Let’s face it, weddings are expensive, but there is no need to break out the tissues just yet.

Alternatives to College

Prairie Eco-Thrifter

I graduated from State U with a liberal arts degree in the early 1970s – when there was a world wide recession followed by stagflation. Does the cost of a four year college or university degree scare you? Are you afraid to go, and yet afraid not to go? We all have been taught that a college degree is the path to the good life, but is it still – when students are emerging with heavy debt and little chance of a lucrative job?

Why Use Cash?

Prairie Eco-Thrifter

In 2008-2009 when we had the credit crunch and recession, there was at least one day when stores were not accepting credit. Back in my teens and early twenties, Mom used to yell at me about not carrying enough cash. She envisioned me running out of gasoline and not being able to get home. At the time, I didn’t have credit cards so it was a valid concern. Either I would be walking or using my last quarter in the pay phone to call home and beg someone to come get me.

11 Things I learned After Owning a Vacation Property

Prairie Eco-Thrifter

Although the operating costs are typically covered entirely each year, the opportunity cost of having all that money tied up in a property (which lost value the year after we bought it due to the recession) is huge. We purchased a vacation condo in a local resort area in 2006 (yep, right before the crash). My sister-in-law and her husband had one that they used and rented out and indicated that it was doing well. That gave me the idea to start looking around for one too.
