On Becoming Frugal

Getting old means…being amazed by how expensive things are now. A pair of shoes for $169! At Marty’s, a cheap shoe store! I recall, in high school, a classmate, Pat Coviello, boasting that he had saved $25 for a gift for his mother. A mere $25! Movies cost what then? 12 cents for a matinee? A candy bar was a nickel. Maybe that’s one reason (among many) why older people are so frugal. Today’s prices seem so exorbitant.
