With the economy slowly picking up and other employees regaining their jobs as well, it's not unusual for people to still tighten their belts a little bit more. These days we can never indulge in too many things that we don;t really need most especially when you have kids and whole family to support.
I can only salute those homemakers that really are saving and penny pinching for they know there are more other things important. There are also some who are investing their money hoping to earn more. Others venture to buy gold bullion and the like since gold have been known to have good value overtime. In fact, gold are so precious that you can store them over time and they will have good value.
