Frugal living is trying to live a life with less but always with a positive attitude towards everything. Frugal living isn’t a “sacrifice”, is just a lifestyle.
This is great for families living off just one income and for people that want to save more money. This lifestyle will definitely help you save more. It could be taken to the extreme but, in my opinion, the middle grown is what makes more sense to me. Keep in mind this topic is fairly new to my life, so on this post, I’ll be sharing frugal living tips that I apply to my daily life.
1.Make things yourself
Making your own bread, pasta, biscuits, and desserts will make you save so much money. If you find healthier recipes and cut down the sugar and salt, your overall health will improve.
2. Purchase second-hand
Buying clothes, furniture, accessories and decor items on thrift stores and second-hand shops will definitely help you save money.
3. DIY household cleaning products
Cleaning products are usually quite expensive, so making them yourself will help you save more money in the long run. There are so many recipes on Pinterest and they are so easy to make. I have a board on Pinterest dedicated to this, click here for some inspiration. Another plus about this is that you won’t have harsh chemicals on these products, it will be good for you and for the environment.
4. Meal Plan
This is a really good way to save money. When grocery shopping, you won’t be buying things you don’t need and you’ll be able to estimate the price per meal, helping you have a more accurate budget. On this post, you have a free meal planner to download.
5. Have reusable bags
I always have fabric bags with me whenever I go grocery shopping. Where I live, the plastic bags aren’t free so, this helps me save money and helps the environment (a lot!).
So, these are the tips I have for you. Let me know in the comments if you have other habits that help you save money.
Thank you so much for reading it, and I’ll see you in my next post.
