Frugal? who me? really you think? THANKS!

January 20th, 2009 at 07:26 pm

so let me start off by saying that i am blessed to have been a part of history and to witness history today... Go OBAMA!!

so back to the task at hand, BEING CALLED FRUGAL.. i don't know about anyone else but the word does not offend me at all... especially in an economy as uncertain as our current one.
This past weekend, i took a trip to mall with a friend of mines to look for a wedding dress.. i was amazed at how much money she was willing to spend on the dress and everything else in the mall. I walked beside her in complete shock because the idea of buying a handbag for $500 or a pair of gucci sandals for $275 just did not and could not sit anywhere in my frugal(sane) mind. after about an hour of the madness, i finally said something about how crazy she was to for even considering such expensive product. Her response, " oh please, you only live once, just enjoy your money, and stop being so frugal." I have to agree with the first part of her response, yes, we only live once, and we should enjoy ourselves, but i am also aware that this "one" life of mines might be a long one and i plan on having some money for later so i can live a nice comfy live, especially at a time in life when i might not have the strength, health, or ability to do so..
People, think twice before you spend your hard earned money on things you can live without, and stop making all these designers rich, while you scrap to pay for your basic necessities... be blessed!!

    Welcome! It sounds like you came to the right place. I hope your friend really was spending HER money and not money she didn't have to spend, i.e., on a credit card. I think this is why I never enjoyed shopping with friends. I don't want to have to explain my frugalness.

    lol. the thing i dont understand with weddings is people willing to spend daft amounts on things that people really dont notice. i mean, shoes, seriously, they're going to be UNDER a dress. a handbag? i dont think i have ever seen a bride with a handbag. things like tablecloths, napkins, placemarkers etc. all can be done on the cheap with a little creativity. they dont have to look cheap, but they dont have to cost a million dollars either.

    so welcome! you will find lots of people here who share your viewpoint! me included!

    Welcome. My thought is living with in means and not spending more then you make. Within that category, we each have different priorities and our spending and saving goals are different.

    Each of us has a difference balance point life. What is lavish to you could be frugal to someone else and vis versa.

    In any case, welcome and always interesting to see other people's views.
