Frugal Living Resources

Being frugal is more than learning how to save money, it's when a person learns how to live a simpler life and be less wasteful without over exceeding personal finances. The old definition of frugal meant to go without, but in today's economy, being frugal has much more meaning. Being frugal has many benefits including saving money, simplifying money spending, reducing stress, and the ability to pass on what you have learned to the next generation. Practicing how to be frugal is fun and helps a person learn how to compromise. With today's economy, being frugal will help you save more and learn to spend less.
