Are You Thrifty and Frugal?

By  | 

I was doing some thinking today and wondered ‘What exactly does it mean to be frugal and thrifty?'.  Naturally, my search led me to dictionary.com.  I thought you all (or ya'll ;)) also might like to know.  Maybe this will help you to decide if you are indeed thrifty and frugal and possibly encourage you to reconsider your choices. 

Thrifty – careful and diligent in the use of resources; mindful of the future in spending money; careful with money; wisely economical

Frugal – avoid waste; thrify, chary, provident, careful; entailing little expense; requiring few resources; meager; scanty

After reading these definitions I decided I was for sure a frugal and thrifty lady.  I learned from the best . . . my mother.  She taught me how to clearance shop, clip coupons, and other countless ways to save money.  We still talk on the phone about the deals we got and how much money we saved.
