Being frugal is more than making a choice every now and again about what to buy or how much to use. It’s a complete lifestyle change that involves determining how much of a particular something you really need. Many people become so accustomed to using a specific amount of something each time and never think “Am I using too much?” This can lead to a lot of wasted money.
When you stretch out and make the things you buy last you will only have to buy this product possibly every month instead of every week. A good example of this is when you use liquid body wash. You can effectively wash your entire body with an amount equivalent to the size of a dime, but yet many people will use an entire hand full or even two hand full if they feel they are extra dirty. This kind of non-frugal behavior leads to a lot of waste.
There are so many great reasons to be frugal in your life that I can’t even cover them all. The main point here is to just make you aware of how much of a particular thing you are using and for you to consider “am I using too much?” Keep reading and I will point out some tips to help you achieve a frugal lifestyle.
