Hughes, Dora Morrell: Thrift in the Household. V1. 30 Oct 2010
This book was first published in 1918 but it is quite readable and the principles are still valid.
What Thrift Is and Is Not
THRIFT is the making the best of what one has in strength, time, or money; getting one hundred per cent, in one’s relations with life. Thrift is an appreciation and application of the accumulative force of little things. Thrift is a constructive force; waste is its destructive opposite. Sometimes thrift is saving, going without; sometimes thrift is spending:—“there is a scattering that increaseth”—but always it is something for something. Thrift is the base on which success of every kind is built, for either thrift or waste is used in everything. The business man applies thrift when he finds the measure by which he can reduce his “overhead” by the fraction of a cent, for he realizes that these fractions soon grow into dollars.
