Living frugal life is a powerful thing. Living within your means doesn’t mean you have to give up things, but you just have to view the world slightly differently. Here my family have made a few changes to our lifestyles, such as: my wife makes our laundry and dish washing detergents, makes most of our meals and such. We really don’t miss out on anything. We just try to do things for ourselves this cuts costs and saves money. We have internet access, but we do not have cable TV. We never watched live TV any ways when we had cable. We always had shows on our DVR. Now we watch an hour of TV after the kids are in bed. We stream the shows from the stations web sites. Never miss a thing. We also stream lots of movies and shows from Amazon with prime.
By living a frugal you may also learn new talents that you never knew you had. Now instead of buying cakes from the box stores my wife bakes our children’s cakes. Come to fond out she is very good at it. Lots of friends and family request her cakes now.
My girls and I get custom cakes for all our birthday’s now. It all started with a three layered princess castle cake, and now she can do just about anything anyone wants. Things are different even better, and we save money. We spend every night around the diner table. Everything great thing in the world happens around the diner table.
I try to grow as much of our food as I can. Hopefully I keep getting better at that. Food I grow has more nutrients and tastes better. Growing food is like printing money. We all have to eat. The ability to grow your own food is like having a printing press.
