We are a frugal family, but we are not cheapskates.
The difference is, we do spend money and we don’t free-load. (cheapskate by definition: a miserly person. miser by definition: a stingy hoarder of money and possessions, often living miserably.)
We don’t waste a lot of money. We have a home and kids, so sure we buy things. A lot of things. Waste: I guess that can be determined differently by different people. The point is, we aren’t flashy, spendy, gotta have everything, the best of everything, pocket full of money, living on credit card debt kind of people.
We think through most purchases (sometimes for weeks or months) we save for big items, and we don’t think the most expensive is always the best. We save for it, we pay for it, we enjoy what we have and don’t worry about what we don’t have.
Hopefully here, we can learn from you and maybe you can learn from us.
