In this crazy busy world we live in where most people are working two jobs and our kids are scheduled for 2-3 after school activities during the week. We are so busy, we are so consumed. And we are consuming so much.
Costs Of A Busy Life
The average family is spending $200 a week eating out. The price of an average home is on the rise. The money coming in is no where near the money going out. The average family is living pay check to pay check attempting to pay down their debt or save money.
Wouldn’t it be nice to step away from the hustle and bustle and breathe in some fresh air. This can be literally or figuratively. I personally love living away from the big city, the traffic and the “must spend”, “must keep up” atmosphere. You can step back, save money and go simple.
Living Well On Less
Like I said before, you can live well on less. Think about what you can cut back on? Can you make more frugal choices?
What Is Frugal Living?
A frugal lifestyle is the act of living well on less. Spending less than you make and living below your means.
Examples Of Frugal Choices
Frugal people choose to go without so they can have more. A frugal person may choose to skip the drive thru, bring their own coffee and make a homecooked meal so they can afford or budget for a family vacation.
Examples of frugal choices include meal planning, washing your laundry in cold water, growing your own food, canning and preserving food. And so much more.
Slow down the busy. Figure out what matters. Harness living well with less (frugal living) and you will save money. The definition of simplify is to make simple or make easier.
Life isn’t always meant to be hard. Life shouldn’t be about work, work, work to pay the bills. If you have a second, step back and think. What can you cut back on to save money and time. What do you and your family value?
Money Saving Changes
Could you shop vintage and generic instead of name brand to save money? Could you downsize your expensive mortgage and get a smaller home to save money? How does home cooked meals sound to drive thru rushed dinners? Does growing a garden sound good? Or a family picnic in the park?
Stepping back from the hustle and bustle, the rat race and choosing simple (definition: easy to understand, easy to do, straight forward. Not complicated). Choosing simplicity can save you money.
