There are many people who live by this quote: ‘People who say that money can’t buy happiness just don’t know where to shop’ – Kathy Lette

Being frugal for me is about being thoughtful about your purchases, finding things that you enjoy, and buying things that enhance your quality of life.
You don’t have to live your life ruled by money. The amount of money in your bank account does NOT determine how much fun you have!
Think about what matters to you and simply spend money on that. If something doesn’t add anything to your life, don’t consume it.
