Febraury Goals for Emergency Preparedness

“There is a wise old saying ‘Eat it up, wear it out, make it
do, or do without’. Thrift is a practice of not wasting anything.
Some people are able to get by because of the absence
of expense. They have their shoes resoled, they
patch, they mend, they sew, and they save money. They
avoid installment buying, and make purchases only after
saving enough to pay cash, thus avoiding interest
charges. Frugality means to practice careful economy”
James E. Faust

Schedule time each day to read with your family from the Book of Mormon.
