Personal Management and Mentally Awake

I didn't want this to wait for the next "Patrol Box".

Part of "mentally awake" is learning the basics of managing your money. It doesn't get any more basic than this--and the techniques used are still valid.

This video is as true today as ever--and with the continuing slide in camera prices, it isn't too far off either!

Definitely a must see for the Personal Management merit badge...and any Scout who needs to be reminded that, "A Scout is thrifty."

Your Thrift Habits (1948)

That was a fun movie. From the 1950's from the looks of it. I do not know any teenager tonight that could get by one a $2.00 a week allowance.

I'm going to keep an eye out for more of these kinds of movies. They are great for communicating to Scouts--who are fascinated by the whole "Leave It to Beaver" quality.

"Buy A pen?" "Add ink?"

Or as my six year old asked the other day, "Did they forget to add the color?"
