Four pieces of paper that is priceless.

December 16th, 2007 at 12:57 am

One thing that I did find in these boxes was the first magazine articles that I cut out on saving money over fifty years ago. It funny what you do keep, Spend a little … Look Great, it’s on save on beauty products & how to use them in three lessons not much has changed but some brand names and Prices. The other one is ‘How to dress well on 2 pounds per week’. Not that I had 2 pounds a week to spend then on clothes or 5 shillings on beauty products per week either. As 15 year old, I was lucky to have train fare to go to work and keep myself in shoes and pay board at that time but one could dream and plan. Once I did put them in the fire by accident as one has burnt corner on it but its still readable. I don’t know which magazine they came out of or if it’s still in print. They don’t write articles like these any more. I will never be throwing these away now that I have kept them for so long and information still works for today.

    any chance you'd be willing to type them up to share with us?

    I thinking of doing extracts from them in the future. It's about 10 hours of typing, so it will be a slow job!

    I will give it ago! I still haven't worked out if one is British. But we had pound and shillings back then too!

    I was born in 1969, so I missed the imperial days, but the tips sound timeless so maybe a summary of the main points would work?
