What is frugal living anyway?

The dictionary definition of frugal is:

Spending very little money and only on things that are really necessary.

So wait a minute! What does that mean: really necessary?

Who decides that? And why should I bother?

Well, that is entirely up to you:

It doesn’t mean that if you follow our website that you have to be radical or that you are not allowed to spend money on the little
luxuries in life, like eating out in your favorite restaurant sometimes or spend another lunch break with your colleagues at Starbucks.

We just want to share strategies with you so you can set priorities on what you spend your money on, rather than wondering where exactly your last paycheck went or how you can make it until your next one. But frugal living also means that you learn about savings and a minimal lifestyle and that you can make the most of what you have, even when there comes a time where money is tight!

On the other hand, if you already embrace a frugal,minimal lifestyle we still might have some new ideas for you.
