Frugality is an ancient word which comes from latin root word with frug "virtue" frux "fruit or value", frui "to enjoy or have the use of"
Frugality is enjoying the virtue of getting good value for every minute of your life energy and from everything you have the use of (Robin & Dominguez, Your money or your life).
Its simply being content and enjoy your possessions. If you have five pairs of shoes but feels you still luck one and failed to enjoy the other pair then one is not frugal.Frugal people use something wisely. its about getting a full value of everything that life has to offer.
Frugal people make sure they get value on all purchase from the- kilo of mangoes, to the galloon of ice cream and even a simple beach get away. Waste is not on the number of our possessions but on our failure to enjoy them.
You dont even have to own something to enjoy it.. you merely have to use it...
Being frugal is right-use or righteous.
It is being able to say that one has enough. Enough is being contented with the things that life has provided you.
I would say that to be a frugal person takes a lot of effort espacially if you are not brought up to be frugal. But eventually one will learn how to become one. The very first step to be frugal is to enjoy to the fullest the very things you possess, before acquire similar or the same item. To achieve it you need to have mentors that will guide you to become financially independent, joining the Truly Rich Club is very beneficial to me.
