The Frugal lifestyle is not temporary for me. Frugality is part of me.
I have been frugal all my life. (I am now retired) Because fugal
living has always been part of our lives, we are now financially secure.
We had a long range plan when my husband and I were younger. That plan
included a college education for me while raising 4 children. I worked
as a teacher for 26 years. While my husband took care of the
finicancial needs of our family, my wages went to investing in the
housing market. We rented out homes which my husband did all the
repair on. Now they are all paid for and we have more than enough
income to live on. We are now able to give to our favorite charities.
We now live in a modest paid for home and we also have a modest home at
a nearby lake.
I believe in living on 80 percent of your income, give at least 10
percent away and save 10 percent.
I love our frugal lifestyle. I am known by others as being very frugal
and I am glad.
I also beieve in delayed gratification!
