Making Better Decisions

LMAYO9

I used to think that living frugally was about doing without, but after trying to look for cheaper ways to do things, I've learned it's not about sacrifice so much as making smarter choices. For example, my hair requires some intense products to keep it under control, and I've made the commitment to shop around to find the best price for these products. I've found the same item for as much as $7 less than I normally pay for it! And my hair still looks great! So I made the better choice to shop around instead of going to the nearest store and paying a premium. I think this can apply to anything in your life.

I agree you can apply this to every area of life. Its kind of like the commercials about the hair care same results less money , beacuse we are worth it.
