Thinking Thrifty’s Top 20 Money Quotes

I made some pretty substantial changes to my spending habits this year.

I’ve read a lot of personal finance material from other bloggers and books from the guys who’ve gone out there and reached financial independence.

Over this last year I’ve read many money quotes from MANY great minds.

Below are my favourite twenty, I hope you enjoy them and find them as inspirational as I did.
