Frugalistas Frugalistas

 If you had the means to live non-frugally would you? Or would you still do somethings the frugal way?

I would probably still be frugal but I would like to be able to stress less about basics: food, clothes, etc.

I love it and wouldn't change I don't think.  I love getting the best deal on things.  It is a game for me!  Plus nothing beats getting checks in the mail every month for shopping.

This is like us!!! All of a sudden I have to cut corners though since I extended my maternity leave...I hope I can keep up some of my frugal ways after going back to work next month... !! It is a lot of work/ advanced planning as far as shopping fliers for best price, going to different stores to get those great prices, strategically planning meals so there is no waste or urgency to order out...

Pre kids, we would be too lazy to do laundry on sun night & just go out and buy a new outfit Or two lol!!!


Quoting my4boys2002:

I have only been trying to be frugal since dec, I'm douing it because I want to not because I need too. I've always been a high end shopper, I'm seeing how much I've wasted what some consider a all out spree is what I'd spend daily out shopping. The one thing I know I cannot give up is chanel skin care. Ill try to wait til counters have sales for that.

Those habits would just be too hard to break!  My mom trained me well.

Yes, we both have great incomes but are pretty frugal regardless. No need to spend money if you don't have to!

Probably not. There is a kind of triumph when getting a lot for spending little. But, if I ever fell into money, would probably just pay off debt.
