Cheap vs. Frugal

by DEE

Isn't it amazing how people who are cheap never have anything? I noticed that my friends who are frugal manage to have more than the ones who are cheap. Why? The people who are frugal spend their money wisely and invest in good quality items. The "cheap" people buy things just because the item is cheap!

Cheap folks end up buying a lot of junk. Sure it didn't cost much but it also didn't last long. So, who is really saving money the frugal or the cheap?

I really get upset when people always want something for nothing. Everything and everybody has value, so stop selling yourself short. Cheap folks would like not to pay anything if they could get away with it!

I'm not saying don't bargain shop, but take time to recognize good quality and workmanship. Don't just buy something because it's pretty or in your mind serves the purpose. My question to you is how long will it last?

Since I'm talking about cheap this morning, I also want to address people who want others to give them something for free. How can we get ahead if we keep giving away everything? Who ends of paying for all the free stuff you give away? Wake-up and understand that nothing in life is free!! Everyone must be compensated for their efforts. You can not reach the top by free-loading on others.

Great Grannies

Many Grannies don't have $25 to give grandchildren. Yours are fortunate... no need to gloat.

Frugal with a HEART
by: DEE

I think you missed the point. Being frugal in this article is in reference to how we purchase the essential items we need. If a person who is frugal thought the products their grandchildren were selling a low quality product, then maybe giving a contribution to a good cause who be better. I too am a grandparent of six, 4 girls and 2 boys, all 4 girls are in Girl Scouts, instead of buying cookies ( that I definitely don't need) I give each of them $25 and write it off on my taxes.(Grannie is STILL GREAT!)

Cheap vs Frugal

I thought of school fundraisers while reading this. Every item offered for purchase is cheap; otherwise schools won't make money. Should people stop supporting their children or grandchilrens' fundraiser or make a purchase knowing the products are cheap? Just food for thought...
