Why should I be Frugal?

Frugal living isn't about deprivation. The aim is to live without waste. By not wasting what you have, you appreciate everything has a value, and are more likely to be satisfied with what you already have. The goal of frugal living is to reduce waste and see the value in things. A frugal mind travels lightly.

Frugal living means smarter spending. Frugal living means harnessing your creativity.

How to be Frugal

Ask what do I really need? Do I need a bed to sleep? Do I need a towel for the beach? What is luxury and what is necessity? How can I use what I already have?

  • food
  • shelter
  • health
  • An interest

Don't be Greedy

    Greed is one of the seven deadly sins. Can you can see why? Greed never knows enough. Greed distorts how people think and only serves one person. Having enough reduces stress. It clears the mind to focus on life rather then never feeling satisfied. Simplicity, trains the mind to appreciate more, with less.
