Fight Inflation with Frugality

The 2022 inflation crisis is the worst in decades, but ways exist to save money, and one is living frugally. Frugal doesn’t mean “cheap.” Frugality is a lifestyle, and those who live it argue they live about the same as they did before, but for less! Big savings can follow years of living frugally. One key principle of frugality you can start using today is, before making any purchase, asking “Is this a want or a need?” This awareness eliminates a ton of impulsive purchases—things you buy without much (or any) prior thought. To learn more, check out Sammy Reinkemeyer’s 2021 book: “Beginners Guide to Living Frugally.”
