Given the rousing success of my Bathroom Full Of Cash post back in November, I’ve decided to start my first weekly feature here at Philaahzophy: Friday Frugality. In doing so I will try to keep the following definition (from Wikipedia) in mind-
Frugality (also known as thrift or thriftiness), often confused with cheapness or miserliness, is a traditional value, life style, or belief system, in which individuals practice both restraint in the acquiring of and resourceful use of economic goods and services in order to achieve lasting and more fulfilling goals. In a money-based economy, frugality emphasizes economical use of money in meeting long term personal, familial, and communal desires.
With all of the posts I devote to making money, a weekly post on spending that money wisely seems well overdue at this point. Besides, frugality is an anarchist principal as well (though clearly not a universal one). After all, the anarchist requirement of self-reliance, along with the agorist destruction of centrally controlled money, and the demands of a truly free market are all serious deterrents to economic waste.
