Musing About Thrift

One of the best way to save money is to be less wasteful. Now, saving a few pennies from not buying snacks or coffee isn’t going to make us rich, but thrift gives us the right values in life.

Being thrifty means we hone our money-saving skills and apply it to different situations. When we use enough of these skills in enough places, the savings can be substantial.

There are many ways to reduce wastage, for example using less electricity by switching off the lights and air-conditioner when we are not around, cooking less food which reduces leftovers and household grocery bill, or to drive less to save on fuel and maintenance.

You can also use lesser toilet paper as well as dishwasher and laundry detergent without becoming more dirty.

Has thriftiness made you a better person in life?
