We often decide to be frugal for a few reasons. These can include wanting to lessen our impact on the world, learning to be happy with less and probably the most popular reason, to save money!
Part of budgeting and saving money will lead to times when you will feel that you are missing out.
It may be a weekend trip with your buddies or waiting for the latest blockbuster to rear it’s head on DVD. There are a lot of things that you may miss out on and it can be demoralising, depressing and feel totally unfair.
If you straight up don’t have the cash it can be tempting to use credit cards, if you are saving for something bigger it can be tempting to eat into those savings. However if you rationally deal with the emotional side of missing out you may find yourself being able to fend off the spending urges.
