A leaflet from the Squander Bug campaign. The text describes the Squander Bug as 'the Dictator of spending' and a friend to Hitler and Tojo. The Squander Bug can be 'squashed' by putting money into War Savings. The illustration shows the 'squander bug' sitting on a hand, next to some coins, saying 'It Doesn't matter what you buy - Go on spent it'.
