My grandmother, who taught me:
"Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without"
would have been proud of me.

My mother, who tried to teach me:
"Hard work is the road to success"
Always called be a bum.

Over MY OWN LIFETIME I also have had NO MONEY A LOT MORE OFTEN then I have HAD MONEY

When I have it I spend it all and when I don't I just don't

So I totally agree with your grandma's saying
