Suggest that they get a copy of the ‘Wealthy Barber’. ÝThis guy shows a road map for becoming wealthy by being frugal and not trying to “keep up with the Jones” so to speak. ÝBorrow a copy from the library so you understand what I mean or buy it off the internet at Ebay for their Christmas gift. ÝIf you think that would help.
By the way what has your husband been doing when they ‘attack’ so to speak your frugal ways? ÝIf he isn’t backing you Ýthen find out why. ÝIt sounds like you might have to bite the bullet so speak. ÝAre you by chance being too frugal or at least appearing to be too frugal? ÝFor instance my parents washed plastic utensils to be reused after a family get together. ÝThey didn’t have enough real ones at the time. ÝIf this is your problem then try finding more normal alternatives. ÝÝ Ý Ý
