What Is Frugal Living?

Frugal living is often thought of as being synonymous with the word cheap! However, there are some HUGE differences between being cheap and being frugal.

In fact, you don’t need to be an extreme cheapskate to live a frugal life.

According to Google Dictionary frugal by definition means: “sparing or economical with regards to money or food.” But to many people, frugal living means much more.

Six Months of Blogging

One thing I’m learning in life is things never stay the same. This week I have two major milestones, one personal and one over on the blog. On Facebook it is now popular to celebrate and congratulate friends on your “friendaversary” and this week, I have my sixth-month blogaversary. Seriously, I can’t believe I have been at it for six months. Eh em, I want to first thank my fans…Okay, I won’t go there!  However, I will share with your my second milestone. My baby boy is turning three. He is such a joy in my life and I can’t believe how big he is getting. I want to slow down time for a moment and keep him young, but I know that is not possible, so I will be joyful with him as he grows. He is seriously my little angel.

All Moms out there feel my pain. Watching your kids grow is bittersweet. You want them to learn and go forward, but in the same sense wouldn’t it be nice if we could keep them little and snuggle them for evermore?  I know I would love to rock my almost five-year-old to sleep one last time. Don’t get me wrong, it is nice when they can do things for themselves. I won’t miss sleepless nights, diapers and tantrums, but I wouldn’t trade the last three years for the world. These milestones just remind us to hug our dear ones closer and always tell them and remind them how special they are.

Did anyone used to watch the show “Hoarders”? The story-line involved people who could not let go of accumulated stuff and their houses were eventually overtaken by knick-knacks and other sentimental treasures.  Experts would swoop in and try to convince the poor souls to let go of items to improve their living conditions.  I’m not even sure it is still on, but let’s face it, we all have a bit of that sentimental hoarding-side that makes us clutter-happy. (Useful Tips for Decluttering Your Home and Gaining Perspective).

Why Is It So Hard to Let Go of Clutter?

The definition of a hoarder is “a person who hoards things.” (Google definitions) So true, it is easy to have obsessiveness with certain items. Mostly, we hold on to stuff that evokes emotion and conjures up memories and/or nostalgic feelings.

Nonetheless, fear is triggered when parting with our items. We have a fear of regret. We are anxious about forgetting our dearest memories. Of course, we do not want to let go of these wonderful items.
