In Search of the Frugalites
Frugality – the quality of being economical with money or food; thriftiness.
Frugalite – a lighthearted person who pursues frugality as an authentic way of life (you won't find it this word in the dictionary. I made it up during my morning writing session).
Do you like all things frugal? I must confess I started my frugal ways somewhat reluctantly. Over time I found my lifestyle changes to be more to my liking. It was as if my pallet for simplicity changed. I lost my taste for expensive cars and high dollar mortgages. Debt left a bad aftertaste in my mouth and I decided to eliminate it from my diet. Something happens to your soul when you dedicate yourself to this kind of lifestyle. I'm no longer a prisoner. I'm free. I'm a frugalite!
The next step in my journey is to connect with others who share my values or desire to downsize. I think it will be fun to build a community of frugalites. There may not be a place for this word in the dictionary but we can all fit in here. Who's in? Do you want to be a frugalite? Join me. Have a great day.
