Thrift: Making It The Old-fashioned Way by earndollarz(m): 11:50am On Dec 30, 2016
There's an old saying in the medical parlance (I'm medical doctor by the way): "The more things change, the more they remain the same"

And so it is with the old-fashioned practice of Thrift or Thrift Institution.

Remember the early on Nigerian TV sitcom: Bassey & Company with Bassey, a Thrift Collector, and his catch-phrase:

"If you want to be a M i l l I o n a I r e then think like a :M i l l I o n a I r e".


Well, its happening today and in this internet age, it's now on steroids.

"The more things change, the more they remain the same"

And let me tell you: as fraught with scams and swindlers as the internet might be, modernized Thrift Institutions have evolved that I can whole-heartedly agree with.

And as with the wisdom of Thrift associations of old - surviving the old-fashioned way till date - the modern versions also bring prudence and proper money management to bear, and eventually will make one able to live a comfortable life.

And so we have various Cooperatives and the like. But there is this one that I am particularly fond of that is inspiring in its innovativenss.

I will not mention names openly ( w h a t s a p p 0 8 0 2 3 4 3 6 8 9 8 for details) but I truly believe it is the evolution of the age-tested Thrift Institutios that have in the past created contentedness and comfort for our diserning forebears in this struggling economic landscape of ours.
