But it wasn’t just old-world scrimping that helped our mom finance a comfortable retirement. She made shrewd investment moves, too, buying into tech stocks early and learning her way around IRAs and 401(k)s. When did the smartest money person I know become a doomsday prepper?
I love EVERYTHING about your mother for resoling her shoes and bringing her own mug but then investing her money. I feel like if I became rich one day or really financially secure, I’d still shop at Target. I want ALL of my money!
