The Ultimate Guide to Frugal Living

The Ultimate Guide to Frugal Living

The Ultimate Guide to Frugal Living

Love this list. What I have learned over the past years is that being frugal is far from being cheap and reframing from daily basic needs. It’s about thinking out of the box and finding alternate ways to save money.

There is definitely a creative aspect to living frugally. For frugal people, this seems to be something they really enjoy. Personally, if it takes me too much time, I would rather pay for it! But given my current student loan dilemma, I am all about creative ways to save!!

This is exactly what I was thinking. Being frugal does not mean being cheap. For us, we are living below our means (for now) so we can live the life we want without debt looming over our heads for the rest of our lives. Love this round up!

I definitely wasn’t naturally frugal and was quite the opposite for many years but about 3 years ago I started practicing frugality more and I have to say that I not only have more money in my bank account but I don’t miss the lifestyle that I used to live. I used to think “frugal” meant “cheap” now I know “frugal” means “smart money choices.”
