Living frugally means changing your lifestyle. Frugal living has to be a commitment that you make.
It is not easy changing from one lifestyle to another. However, it can be done. In order to save money for your future or retirement one must be able to see where they are wasting money and where they can save money.
You do not need to be materialistic to be happy. Being happy with what you have is a good thing. Making the most out of what you already have, learning how to consolidate and learning how to be self sufficient is not an overnight appreciation.
You have to want to be frugal as being frugal is a good thing. Living a frugal lifestyle will improve your health as you will have less stress. You will appreciate life and nature more. You will become creative in how to save money, reduce waste and you will be teaching your family the same values.
Living a frugal lifestyle is rewarding. Sometimes we have to start our lives over so why not start by learning how to be frugal.
