16 People That Proved You Don’t Need Much Money to Be Happy

year ago

Almost everyone has had a situation when we couldn’t afford something we needed or wanted. And some people learned to be frugal in ways that others can’t even imagine. They fix their own clothes with embroidery, make toys and shoes for their kids, and even create little things for their pets. We’re happy for the people that always stay in a good mood no matter what and make their and others’ dreams come true, while not spending too much money.

“My son wanted a stuffed manta ray for his 5th birthday, but I didn’t have the money to buy one, so I converted his old baby blanket into one!”

“My husband had a hole in his favorite pants, so I embroidered a little turtle.”

“My wife and I thought that we could do a better job than a famous toy company.”

“I usually make cards instead of buying, but this year I got conned into doing my nieces’ cards for Father’s Day too.”

“They’re not my best work, but they’re full of love.”

“I finally took all the carpet samples I’ve collected and put them to use.”

“My kids loved/read this Bustletown book so much that it started falling apart.”
