If you are like me and have grandparents who lived through the Great Depression, I'm sure you have heard of many of their hardships but have you taken on board some of the lessons that got them through that very difficult period?

We have taken on board some of these lessons which include simple things such as:

  1. Making friends with your neighbours and being part of your community.
  2. Not putting all your eggs in one basket, diversifying any investments you have.
  3. Remembering that credit can be cancer, and we need to be really careful with things like personal loans and credit cards and things of that nature.
  4. Getting back to enjoying the simple life and thinking about activities that maybe don’t involve spending money.
