How Frugal Are You?
Since starting this blog, Ylan and I have thought about what it truly takes to be frugal.
I used to go to Starbucks or Caribou Coffee every morning before work. Now, I usually make coffee at home and drink it as I write a blog post or get ready for work. This morning, however, I was in a hurry to get out of my apartment and decided to buy a latte on my way to the office. I reasoned that it was okay because I made my own lunch today and the only meal I paid for this weekend was a bagel on Saturday afternoon. Did I fail at my attempt to be more frugal or was it okay to splurge on the latte?
While trolling through the blogosphere just now, I came across one blogger’s definition of frugality. She describes herself as “a girl trying to find the balance between being a Shopaholic and a Saver.” (And can I just say, I know where she’s coming from?) In doing so, she has come up with three levels of frugality: the Hardcore Frugal, the Urban Frugal and the Un-Frugal.
