RE: From Where I Sit, A New Look At Work
July 21, 2006 v14 i27
Hazel Anaka’s article brought back another memory. Banks were open from 10 – 3 and closed weekends and Wednesday! No bank cards then. In the late 60s my mother had budgeted $45.00 for groceries for 2 weeks for a family of 5! We always had a roast or chicken for “Sunday dinner.” One trip to the bank on payday was enough for most people. The ease with which we spend what we have (bank cards) and what we have not (credit cards) is a far cry from the life we once knew. Unless we as a society change our attitude towards our spending inflation will continue to soar.
