It's A Gamble Being A Housewife

At Dames Of Chance, Shawnee discusses What’s A "Kitty"? Why So Many Of Them?, offering this bit of insight into the lives of wives:

As my grandma told me, years ago housewives would stash bits of cash around the house. Because often the little woman didn’t have access to the bank or was simply given a cash budget to work within, there was the usual cash kept for household expenses (typically kept in a desk drawer in the kitchen or in a coffee can in a cabinet), but housewives also kept secret stashes of other money too..
.After you read about thrift, you might want to check out the reason Shawnee started her blog.
