But how to get start with a frugal life? Especially when the problem is right now?
I started down the path towards living frugally because I HAD to. I didn’t have enough money to pay my bills or clothe my child. And the one credit card I could get was maxed out very quickly.
I had no money! For clothes, for my baby, for food and definitely nothing for going out and enjoying life or even experiencing it.

what does being frugal mean?
Wikipedia explains frugal as this:
Frugality is the quality of being frugal, sparing, thrifty, prudent or economical in the consumption of consumable resources such as food, time or money, and avoiding waste, lavishness or extravagance.
To me the frugal lifestyle simply means being smart with the money you have.
Ensuring your money has purpose and is not wasted on things you do not need, only want (temporarily).
Being frugal is about making the right financial decisions for you so you can afford the things you want and be happy about the things you don’t have.
Fast forward to next year and imagine knowing you have money in the bank, food in your cupboards, an emergency fund and a plan for a great financial future. That’s what frugal living and learning the art of saving money can do for you.
frugal living choices
Can frugal living save you money? Absolutely it can.
Does it mean living on rice and beans and never going out? Absolutely not (unless you love that kind of repetitive diet).
Most people don’t strive for frugal living because they like the idea of it. The frugal living movement has it’s feet firmly planted in the ‘need to’ camp because you have to.
There is no doubt that living simply and frugally will save you money. How much you save is entirely down to you.
I loving frugal living and all that it can provide. For me, the number one positive that I think you can gain from a frugal lifestyle is FREEDOM!
- Freedom from debt
- from worrying about money
- from being a wage slave forever more
And what I love about the frugal lifestyle is that it isn’t one size fits all.
We are all different, we all have foibles that mean what I might think is just normal money saving behavior, you might consider to be too extreme for you.
When times are hard you can live and be frugal, when times are less hard you can focus on saving money and achieving your financial goals.
In my opinion, becoming frugal gives you choices. Whereas debt takes away your choices.
