My frugality also recently allowed me to meet my next major life goal of being able to afford to "retire" from my corporate job in my thirties in order to work from home full-time. Now I truly feel like I am the captain of my ship and master of my soul! But, yes, I owe much of the credit for my independence to my mother and the discipline with which she raised me.
Much of what I have been taught was no doubt forged in the blitzkriegs of the Second World War Her survival depended on the ability Age and wisdom be sparing, to improvise, to adapt, and to overcome.
Like for most people alive during that darkest half of the Twentieth Century, frugal living and resourcefulness was not a choice for my mother, but was rather a mandate to stay alive in those times of global scarcity and economic devastation. If there is but one silver lining to the fog of war, it is in this great generation's hard-won victories demonstrating that even the deepest adversity can be over-come with industry, perseverance, and frugality.

She constructed and landscaped the two water-gardens you see above the rest of the yard is like a botanical garden too. But so far I have not yet found the time to start my aquaculture catfish project. I'm currently raising shiner minnows in my pond for free fish bait.
In addition to thousands of perennial flowers, beautiful trees and bushes, and seemingly hundreds of Double Knock-out Roses, she also has a nice little herb garden, vegetable garden, and fruit trees. The annual harvest even from her moderately sized home garden still helps to save a significant amount of money on my parents' grocery expenses.
My parents are pretty well off at this point in their lives, but they are still sparing by nature. I imagine that is probably because it is just a natural instinct of most baby boomers who grew up during and after the Great Depression and World War II.
