I know - you are looking for how to save money, how to DIY, how to economize, scrounge, scrimp and the like (hey, this week I made a dish scrubby out of the plastic netting bag that packages the oranges!) But that's no big deal. The BIGGEST Frugal Tip EVER is summed up in ONE word. Scroll down please...
We scrimp and scrounge and save in an effort to produce more with less. To enlarge our home economies. To produce abundance with mere efforts - whether it be canning, breadmaking or gardening. But, just think how far CONTENTMENT will go in saving you money!
See that item on the thrift store shelf that could be handy for your next canning project? Save your money and forego the item and choose to be content with such things as you have! Ka-ching! Money in the bank.
See that wool sweater on the garage sale table that you have dreams about re-working into woolen/water-proof pants for your cloth-diapering efforts? Be reminded that diapering days will end someday and you've made it just fine this far and you don't really need to spend that 75 cents on it and Ka-ching! Money in the bank. All because you chose contentment!
And as far as frequenting those thrift stores/garage sales... maybe if you grow in contentment, the lure will be less and you will frequent less and spend less because your heart is satisfied in the One Who Satisfies.
So, wanna be frugal?
Be CONTENT. You'll be amazed at the results.
"For I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation." - The Apostle Paul
