I’m not an ultra-frugal person… that takes a lot of self discipline and commitment to saving money that I just don’t have. I can’t re-use teabags or live without air conditioning and heating. But at the end of the day, I don’t like to spend more than I absolutely have to.
- There are lots of reasons people have for watching every dollar carefully. They might not have a lot of money or are saving for something big.
- Work out how to game supermarket rewards programs, look for specials in catalogues, shop around, and compare prices.
- There’s legitimate charity, then there’s being milked dry by people with entitlement issues. Don’t support people who will just wastefully spend the money you give them.
