Being frugal gets a bad reputation. Being called thrifty or economical or, God forbid, cheap is just such an insult. It makes everyone think of their super miserly friend who won’t pay his share, is stingy with tips, and who is always mooching off of other people. Why did that one person have to give frugality such a bad reputation? Frugality can actually be kind of fun.
Today we’re talking about how to be frugal — and why it’s important. How to save money by simple tricks and hacks and swaps to utilizing deal and discount sites. If you do everything on the list, it will be impossible not to start saving toward your goals. I created this episode before the Covid 19 outbreak but it’s important to find ways to be frugal more than ever – especially when the economy is in such a tailspin and jobs are uncertain.
I’m the deal person in my friend group. I’m the person with the Google doc of all the happy hours in the city and will happily share it around. I know of the free, cheap, and fun activities and will always invite my friends along. I don’t have to be frugal, but I choose to be to help my future me.
If you become the deal person in your friend group, they’ll thank you. They secretly would love to have their money go a bit further. Reclaim frugality. There’s nothing wrong with being frugal. You are not fearful of spending money–you are just being smart about how you spend it. Here are some easy ways to save money. Take what you like and leave the rest. Even finding one or two ways to save will help you in the long run.
