Welcome to FlourSackMama.com, where we say that yesterday’s thriftiness inspires today’s better living. I’m inspired by my grandparents who married during the Great Depression and lived frugally because they had no other choice. They grew much of their own food, fixed things instead of throwing them away, and lived happily with less stuff than most of pack into our houses these days. They learned some common sense from my great-grandparents.
