4 Simple Frugal Tips That Will Significantly Change Your Life

In our consumer culture, spending money is an everyday part of life. We buy food, care products, and tickets to our favorite band's concert.

But it can be hard to be frugal in a world full of advertisements urging us to hand over our hard-earned cash for the best new blender.

Others came to the comments section with their best ideas.


If you have an online shopping habit and spend way more than you mean to, you could implement this clever 48-hour trick. 

1. Wait 48 Hours

Get in the mindset that your money is directly linked to the hours you work. Say you make $20 per hour. If you're looking at a $200 air fryer, consider it ten hours of work. Is your precious time worth it?
