Saving Money Up Front is Easier Than Working Hard to Spend More

My husband and I have made a pact to be as frugal as we can. We watched for years as many friends repeatedly got themselves into debt and struggled to get out. We knew there was a better way.

Anyone can be frugal by simply not buying a lot of things. But there are a lot of us who take it further with the help of tips. We know how to make things like groceries, toiletries, toilet paper and so much more last longer than the average person does. No, we don’t all have all the answers on our own, we spend time meeting in different online communities to share tips that we have each come up with.

You know that there is a real problem though and I found out what it was when I went inside and started to inquire about the costs. (more…)
