? In the passage ,the writer describes how he forgot his family’s thrifty tradition and eventually met with financial difficulty. This helped him realize the importance of thriftiness and start to practice thriftiness again.
To me, being thrifty means valuing money, making the most of what I have and trying never to spend beyond my budget or on unnecessary things.
Thrift is an old and dated concept to many young people. As life has become a lot easier, people tend to indulge in a luxurious lifestyle. That’s why I regard this nearly forgotten practice more important now than ever before.
Actually, to be thrifty can be really simple. Most of the time, it’s simply a matter of being more thoughtful in our everyday life: turning off lights when leaving the room , not using the air-conditioners unless necessary, bringing our water bottle from home rather than spending money on soft drinks ,using public transports to avoid needless driving
and parking ,ordering just enough food when eating out , and so forth. To do these might mean doing things others won’t do and controlling our desires. But remember, a smart person is not one who always tries to impress others by showing off their wealth, but one who spares no effort to save for the future and for others .
