The Meaning of Frugal according to the Oxford English Dictionary is quite simply:
“sparing or economical as regards money or food”
However Frugal is one of those words that now means so much more and is with the way the world is going it’s something that has personal meaning to many individuals.
Being Frugal to me is important. I try and save in all aspects of my life and also attribute my impact on society and the environment to the word. If we consume less, we are being frugal and we give the world a chance to recover from some of the major damage we have caused.
If everyone takes some Frugal practice then things on this earth will get decidedly better. There is plenty of money to share around and if we make a better world, health and happiness will grow…. again saving more cash. I’m not talking about full on socialism or anything wacky. Just common sense…..
What is the frugal meaning to you?
