We are trying something new called Frugal Fridays where tips would be given out on how to make frugality a way of life or hobby for you. This will help you save more, spend less without putting a hold on the things you love doing. Hollup, before you scrunch up your nose at the word Frugal, take a minute or two to understand why you should consider this as part of your lifestyle.
Do i have your attention now? Good. Let’s move on.
Being frugal doesn’t mean you are stingy, it means you know how to prioritize and manage what you have and make the best of any situation regardless of present circumstances. For those who attended boarding schools when we were younger, being frugal snuck up on us and taught us how to improvise with what was given. Admittedly, it was a fun, learning experience.
In order for Frugal Fridays to be a success, we’d love your input on the little things you do daily, weekly, monthly or yearly to save more money while living life to the fullest. These things have to be relatable to the average person out there, that cost less and can be done without the help of a professional.
This weekend and coming week, challenge yourself to do new things and learn new ways of doing things without waiting or paying anyone. You’ll learn that you can fix that broken door handle, that those pretty calender pictures can be turned into art for your walls, that cooking isn’t so hard, entering public transportation is fun and cheap things aren’t so bad afterall.
Watch your savings increase as you cut down on certain unnecessary, expensive habits and embrace the frugal way of life. Why don’t you start living frugally today? Set a goal for yourself, get rid of clutter you don’t need and see how much you’d have saved and learned at the end of the time period.
Don’t forget to leave your comments on what you do daily as a challenge to yourself to live frugally. See you next week Friday as we bring you tips on frugal living.
