"Watch the Pennies..."

Photograph of Display of Budget Books…and the dollars will take care of themselves.”  This expression was coined by Benjamin Franklin, but when I was a child, I thought it had been created by my mother's brother. My mom quoted this to us many times; the expression was something the brother who raised her taught her.  In this difficult economy, these words are especially applicable. Our non-fiction book display currently features books that deal with different aspects of a household budget: food, clothing, home repair, energy costs, paying for college, planning a wedding on a budget, etc. Click on 'Read more' to see a sampling of what you will find in our display.
