National Debt Relief encourages consumers to look for financial inspiration, encouragement and enlightenment in various areas of their lives. This is what led them to publish the article titled “Frugal Lessons From Books Like The Hunger Games,” last January 12.
The article mentioned that books have always been quite influential to the norms of society. This is why the debt relief company chose one of the most popular books of today, The Hunger Games, to connect it to important concepts of frugality. Thanks to the popularity of the movie adaptation, this can be a great starting point for parents and teacher who wants to teach financial lessons to their kids.
Who does not know the story of Katniss Everdeen? She is the “Girl on Fire” who sparked the revolution against the government of Panem is now a household name and a hero in the eyes of the next generation. But despite the story of bravery, survival and love, there is an underlying lesson that can be derived from it - frugality.
The article cites 3 important frugal lessons that are extensively promoted in the book.
1. Restraint. The first is developing restraint. The article narrates how Katniss is instructed not to go for the items placed in the Cornucopia at the beginning of the games. This is where the bloodbath initially happens. It will be perilous if she does not restrain herself from getting as much as she wants from this source. In the same way, frugality is about restraint. The article mentions how it teaches consumers about credit card use. It can give a lot of things but it can endanger the consumer’s life in debt.
2. Less is more. Another point is the fighting near the Cornucopia. The tributes battle it out to get as much as they can from this source. Most of them, get killed. Although Katniss just got one bag, it was enough to sustain her. It was not a lot, but at least she survived. If she stayed to get more, it could have led to her death.
3. Understand and enhance personal skills and tools. Lastly, the book highlights how Katniss survived because she concentrated on her skills - which was hunting through a bow. She focused on this despite the presence of other more deadly weapons. She wanted to concentrate more on surviving rather than eliminating other tributes.
National Debt Relief admires the personality of Katniss that is naturally defiant of the norms of society. Just because something is expected of them, she opted to do what is right. This is what frugality is all about. It is a stark contrast to the consumerist society of today but consumers should not be ashamed of this lifestyle.
The article proceeded to discuss other popular books that had relevant lessons about personal finance. To read the rest of the article, click on this link: http://www.nationaldebtrelief.com/frugal-lessons-books-like-hunger-games/.
