It Makes Cents!: The Family Thrift Book
Vi Judge worked as a correspondent and as an agent for Mutual of Omaha in the 1960's, specializing in helping young married couples set up sensible life and health insurance programs.During this period, Vi became painfully aware of the alarming increase in broken homes caused by waste, debt, and poor money management. This awareness prompted her to launch her homemaking column, It Makes Cents, and to write her first book, Home Work, with the specific objective of helping young mothers avoid the mistake she made as a widow-- that of leaving her children to the care of others while she worked away from home.Vi's experience and training qualify her to write this book to help others learn that thrift is not stingy, but smart, and that small thrift efforts, practiced regularly, can bring tremendous results.
