When I was growing up, my parents never really did too many things that were easy on the dollars. My brother and I always had the best of everything. I guess I was kind of a brat. But the older I have gotten, I look back on some of those things. My father never "took things in" to get fixed by someone else. He could fix anything, so he did it himself. That is one thing he did to save money. I guess that is why my brother and I always had nice things.
