Do you love frugal living or are you intrigued by extremely frugal people? Either way, you are bound to understand and share my joys in the list below.

I decided to live a frugal life at a young age. However, as a child, it wasn’t really a choice. We were not rich and my parents taught me how to bargain shop and coupon. I used to LOVE grocery shopping with my mom and totaling up the items as she put them in the cart. Those experiences made me who I am today. My parents taught me the importance of budgeting your money and striving to pay less for items to keep money in your wallet and save more.

Living frugally has taught me patience, financial-discipline, and how to handle my money. I value the fact that I am ready for an emergency and I don’t have to worry if my car breaks down or I end up in the hospital (happened last month but that is another story) because I have the money to pay the bills. Why? I live frugally in many aspects of my life  (balance, balance, balance) and I try to save as much as possible so I can spend my hard-earned money on the things that really matter to me and my family.

You see, we all have different relationships with money that are influenced by other factors in our lives and how we grew up. We all have priorities and we all spend money on something or another. What is important to you may not be important to me. For example, my family likes to travel. We save our money for these life experiences instead of buying the latest iPhone on the exact day of release.

Yet, maybe you are one of those super techy people and you need that phone. That is okay, as long as you have the money to pay for it.

How do you get a surplus of money? It is simple, live a frugal life and save for what matters.

Nonetheless, if you are a frugal person by nature, you will totally understand the list below and laugh out loud at some of the items. If you do not live frugally you will laugh too, but probably in a different way. Just consider living frugally if you want to save more money and spend intentionally on things that matter.

The best frugal living tips and hack to help you save more

Are you looking for ways to save money in 2021? These frugal living ideas to try in 2021 will get you started on the right financial path and let’s face it, 2020 was a tough year for most of us. If you tried frugal living tips in 2020, you may need more frugal hacks for  2021.

Saving money isn’t the easiest thing to do, so I suggest -like any new habit – you should start small. Find some small areas in your budget you can fix and then continue working on your finances from there.

I also suggest finding ways you can fit in small splurges so you don’t miss out on the things that are important to you in life.  For example, if you are not that into home decor, skip decorating your house for every Holiday and keeping up with house decorating trends. Yet, if you love Starbucks coffee, leave room in your budget to treat yourself once per week and make your coffee at home the rest of the week. Therefore, you will not feel deprived and give up.

It is easy to fall into the debt trap in today’s world. Almost anyone can get a credit card and card companies make millions off of people that fall behind and wind up paying interest and late fees. To avoid this, try paying cash in the new year and use a cash envelope system. Use these labels to get you started.

What is Frugal Living?

Frugal living is a state of mind. Instead of splurging and spending, find ways to cut back and save on everyday purchases. These small amounts of savings start to add up and enable you to pay off debt, save for an emergency, and get ahead in life.

According to business insider, one of the traits of becoming a millionaire is learning to be frugal. (Source: business insider) This research was taken from the book “The Millionaire Next Door” by Thomas J. Stanley, Ph.D., and Sarah Stanley Fallow, Ph.D. who interviewed over 600 millionaires for their research.

Often people do not realize many millionaires live frugally. In fact, you would not even know they have money in the bank. Yet, the people buying luxury cars and houses they cannot afford, seem to be rich. And unfortunately, many are drowning in debt. It is funny how appearances can sway our thinking.

Use frugal living as a way to start living below your means and saving more money. These frugal living tips for 2021 will help you get started and allow you to put money in the bank this year.

What Frugal Living Is Not

Frugal living is often confused with being cheap. Yet, frugal living does not mean being cheap or miserly. In fact, it is quite the opposite. Frugal living is learning to live below your means, so you can build up your money. Here are some things that are NOT frugal:

  • Buying Cheap products over quality
  • Depriving yourself of your favorite things
  • Not living life
  • Never doing anything because you have to pay
  • Extreme measures to save money such as driving around town to save a dollar
