Thrifty Yes, But Still Enjoying Life

Sunday, October 4, 2009

Most times we cut corners, use coupons, buy on sale or don't shop at all, but we still want to enjoy life. We cut corners so at times we have extra money for other things we enjoy doing- such as travelling.We cut corners so we can also put money away for Christmas, an emergency fund or our savings.
Are we misers or cheapskates? No. We just want to live a fulfilling life doing with less so we can enjoy more.
I enjoy reading the many Things To Do Before You Die lists on the net, and have a few printed out.There are many things we/I have done. We've swam with the dolphins,seen a lunar eclipse, written a book, etc.. Then there are some we wouldn't try- such as bungee jumping or sky diving. The lists if anything, are fun to read.So are we still thrifty? Yes, most times. We're also still enjoying life and if something does happen to cost us some dollars-hey, how often do we do it?

Don't get me wrong. I don't think you should go out and book a cruise because you want to go on a cruise once in your lifetime. The money should come from money you have saved and not on your credit card.Don't miss out too much on life for the sake of being thrifty though.
