This month we are going to dedicate the issue to everything that is frugal. We will feature articles that will include a ton of new affordable ideas along with some of our frugal favorites.
Some people may be intimidated or even embarrassed by the word frugal. Being frugal doesn’t have to label you as being stingy; you should feel proud to be frugal. Being frugal is a great way to use your creativity and find new ways to extend the use of things or find ways to stretch those important dollars.
Being frugal isn’t just for those who are living paycheck-to-paycheck and struggling to pay their bills each month. Frugality is for anyone who values their money and wants to see it working for them.
Being frugal is just one of the steps needed to have a healthy financial lifestyle. After you have taken the time to do your budget and find out where all your money is going you may need to find places where you can save. That’s where a frugal frame of mind comes in handy.
Some ideas may sound silly, while others may seem obvious. Often times it’s the things that sound strange or the things that sound too easy that may be the ones where you can save the most money.
You may find some frugal things that are only saving you a penny here and a penny there and might not be worth the effort. But the point is that these savings will continue to pile up and you will start to see some significant savings, even if it is just a little at a time.
Even if your budget doesn’t call for some cutbacks, why not practice a few frugal tips to help you save even more. Take the money that you save by being frugal and use it to treat yourself to a vacation or a new love seat.
Being frugal can be fun and challenging as you try and outdo yourself each month or by discovering new ways to save money that some may not have thought of. While we continuously try and feature articles about frugality, there are still a lot of resources that you can use.
There is a frugal option for most activities that you can think of and we encourage you to take more time to search the web for more frugal ideas. It’s up to you to take action and your bank account will thank you for it.
