While I was cleaning up (sort of) in preparation for our trip, I came upon a postcard I picked up in the airport in Iceland. It was free (though food--except for children--was not included in the ticket cost. UGH).
There were a lot of different cards, but I picked the one with the frugal sentiment:
Everything is hay in hard times.
For more wisdom from Iceland, I recommend a wonderful book, which I would never had heard of had I not picked it up for a pittance at a book sale. Interestingly, in the introduction to the book, Brad Leithauser talks about how this is a masterpiece that most people have never heard of.
It IS a masterpiece. It is sometimes slow going, but the very end makes the journey worth it.
