My mom and I some years back organizing her “smart living” pantry.
My friend, Jo, at “Stop – Have At Chat” made this excellent list of suggestion for what she prefers to call smart living. Please go over and take a look if you want some useful hints on how to live “smart”. :-)
She writes, “I don't like the word "frugal" living as it doesn't sound like a lot of fun. It sounds like drudgery to me.
I much prefer to use "smart living" instead, now that sounds like much more fun.
Smart living isn't just about making your money stretch further, but:
- not wasting what you have
- using what you already have
- valuing what you have
- thinking careful before adding to what you have.”
