Aaah..Frugality…A Beautiful Thing

Who knew frugality could cause such a decrease in stress?  I invite you to meditate on such wise words with an open mind – especially with today’s economy.

“With greater emphasis on working to live, not living to work, we are creating awareness for simpler solutions, a more creative existence with healthier, happier longevity, for those brave enough to accept the challenge.” —Tracey Smith

“He who does not economize will have to agonize”–Confusius

 

“By sowing frugality we reap liberty, a golden harvest.” —Agesilaus

“Without frugality none can be rich, and with it very few would be poor.” —Samuel Johnson

“I went to the bank and reviewed my savings, I found out I have all the money I’ll ever need. If I die tomorrow.” —Henry Youngman

“Everyone who got where he is had to begin where he was.” —Robert Louis Stevenson

“Happiness is making the most of what you have.” —Rosamunde Pilcher

We can tell our values by looking at our checkbook stubs.” —Gloria Steinem

“Money in the bank is like toothpaste in the tube. Easy to take out, hard to put back.” —Earl Wilson (SO TRUE)

“Frugality without creativity is deprivation.” —Amy Dacyczyn 

So get creative with your new found frugal-ness! One easy and fun way is to consign and shop consignment. Can you think of some others?
