Ah, savings. Such a ubiquitous word with so many meanings. Whether you’re spending less money at the store or stocking cash away for retirement, you’re actively saving, Femme Frugality covers all the different ways to save money.
Saving More by Spending Less
Saving vs Spending is a huge battle that each one of us fights. We may fight it on the daily if we’re Shopaholics, or we may fight it only during periods of emotions distress.
Frugality as a Lifestyle Choice
The frugal look to save money anywhere they can. On every last purchase, they look for coupons or promo codes. They comparison shop and sometimes go without.
When we practice frugality and have money, we’re making financial decisions from a place of empowerment.
When we practice frugality and don’t have money, we’re making financial decisions from a place of necessity.
We may be making the same decisions, but the underlying cause of our decision affects our psyche differently.
Regardless of why you’ve chosen frugality, you’ll find more than your fair share of inspirational new ideas here.
Frugality as a Shopaholic
I’ve never really been a shopoholic. The few times I’ve gone on a spending binge, I get crazy strong buyer’s remorse and return all the things very shortly after I purchase them.
We all have our own struggles, though, and I am certainly not judging you for yours. Frugality tips can help shopaholics just as much as they can help those who have chosen a frugal lifestyle.
