As part of the 23 Day Frugal Living Challenge, Frugally Sustainable, asks us to redefine “frugal.”
Our level of frugality should never be measured by our ability to shop a sale, or use coupons, or penny-pinch. No, frugal living is found in the enjoyment of what we already have.
It’s learning to appreciate the physical world that surrounds us. It’s stopping the continual search for more. It’s finding value in all things.
- sharing with one another
- living life in balance
- finding happiness in the way things are
- being a good steward of our time, money, earth, energy, and possessions
- simple living
- nothing wasted or unused
Andrea is absolutely right. When did what we have, turn into not enough for us? I too got trapped in the desire for bigger, better, more. These last two years have allowed me to re-calibrate my thinking. Thinking differently is what ultimately leads to contentment and happiness. Not getting more. I know that now.
