Money burns a hole in my pocket


I have been referred to as a cheapskate by some; while, others may say I am frugal with my money. However, I prefer to use the word “thrifty” in describing myself and my spending habits; or better yet, “financially prudent” sounds pretty good. Actually, I tend to think in terms of being financially responsible.

I sometimes think that I am an oddity in this regard as it relates to personal money management.

While others may call me names and poke fun of me, I can confidently proclaim that money does not burn a hole in my pocket.

    I wish you could give lessons to the government on this kind of thinking, as they seem to believe that there is an abundance of money to burn these days, and they seem to have a ready book of matches.
