As is shown above, in the 1970s, grandmother Deng was mending pajamas which had been covered with patches for Premier Zhou in the first picture. By contrast, in the other picture, now, enjoying in affluence despite, with the gratifying smile on a couple, the husband took over his coat that just mended from his wife and said: “ it can also put on for a few years…”

With the rapid development of social productivity, the material life of people becomes more and more rich, and their consumption ideas also changes larger accordingly. We cannot deny these facts, but we can never abandon the traditional virtue of our nation—thrift。
