I believe that I am oriented to an end result. When it comes to frugality, I make investments and not purchases. My trial and efforts have lead me to these three tips in being frugal.
Tip one: Count your receipts … a spreadsheet of monthly or weekly receipt counts have decreased consumption. Because of my competitive nature, I limit the number of stores to be economical.
Tip two: Eat more Legumes… peas, beans and lentils fill you up an affordable price per serving.
Tip Three: Solve the chore and have groceries delivered to your door. The impulse purchases, the junk food are gone. Services like http://www.greenbeandelivery.com have helped my waistline and my wallet.
