Being frugal not working out so well

By Karl Terry: FNM columnist Cheap never seems to work out for me. I should know better than to try and save on eyewear. A little bit of personal history is in order here I think. I’ve been wearing glasses about 38 years now. I first learned my eyesight wasn’t so great after an exam […]
