What is frugal living?
To me it's living within or below your means.
All of our means are different and with time it changes. We've had our ups and downs financially as most families do.
As you can tell our family has had some major changes. We recently bought our dream home and property.
Without frugal living for many years it wouldn't have been possible.
It's important to make goals and know where your headed. For our family a country home was important. We scrimped and saved and did it with a lot of hard work and saving.
I've had people say you can't be frugal Jen living in that house.
My answer, yes I can. I'm still as frugal as ever. I'd love to decorate the house immediately with all new things but I can't.
We live on a strict budget and we don't live beyond our means.
Frugal is a way of life. You can make it drab and boring or your can make it fabulous and an adventure.
Cheers to new adventures!
