Are you a proud Frugalite?
Words are powerful! Perception is half the battle……
Are you trying to keep up with the neighbors?
Can you look at a piece of trash and think Oh wow I can use this for that?
Do you see others throw things out that you think I can so use that!
Are you inspired by things that others think are hokey?
I love reusing and repurposing its better for our planet and its better for all of us.
I used to love Amy Dacyzn’s book The Tightwad Gazette she was not concerned with appearances and she certainly laughed all the way to the bank if others mocked her what did she care. I loved how she made everything a competition.
My husband The Viking and myself one year had a competition on how long we could go without running the Air Conditioning….we made it to June 20th for some of you that is nothing but for the humidity here it was great although all of our cereals struggled to stay fresh and crisp even in plastic ware. We did save a bunch on our electricity bill!
It is important to set goals and to make reaching financial goals currently as I sell items that we have found either via dumpster diving or that we already have to go into our vacation fund for this summer! The little things add up trust me!
So what trash to treasure project have you done lately? Do you always have to go out and buy that latest new item or can you make do?
