Welcome to Frugal Living

Money JigsawThere are many different reasons for wanting to live a more frugal life. Perhaps you need to save money so you can leave your job and start up your own business, or maybe you’d like to spend less time at work and more time at home with the children.  It might be that you’ve just retired or have been put on short time at work and now need to live on a lower income or another reason could be that you are saving for a new car or for the deposit on a house.

What is Frugal Living

A lot of people think that living frugally will reduce their standard of living, but this doesn’t have to be the case.  Frugal Living should be about living mindfully, maximizing what you have, so you get better for less.

“Happiness is making the most of what you have.” Rosamunde Pilcher

Piggy BankWikipedia defines frugality as the “quality of being frugal, sparing, thrifty, prudent or economical in the use of consumable resources such as food, time or money, and avoiding waste, lavishness or extravagance”.

It doesn’t mean you have to turn into a stingy cheapskate who doesn’t pay their fair share.

“Without frugality none can be rich, and with it very few would be poor.”
Samuel Johnson
