This study was collected data from 301 aging in Bangnanglee Subdistrict Amphawa District Samutsongkhram Province. The findings were summed up. From calculating the data of the questionnaires, the mean value and standard deviation showed that the sample group’s attitude toward the philosophy was in the average rage ( x = 2.71 ). When consider into each point, I found that the teaching about growing vegetables in the household garden received the highest score ( x = 3.51), then following by “spending only necessary ( x = 3.48), “do we really have to buy this thing?” ( x = 3.43), “do we teach our children how to think before buying?” ( x = 3.38). The last point which received the lowest score was “are we going to wastemoney on lotto?’ ( x = 1.69). The most of samples were males, primary school graduates and agriculturists.
