Frugal Living

I’ve been browsing various frugal living websites and videos. It’s VERY inspiring to see what people are doing. What may seem somewhat off topic is actually at the heart of obtaining your dreams. The main idea is to slash your expenses and live simply so you can live the way you really want. Here’s just one example to think about (see video). Garry Tibbo in Canada talks about living practically for free by foraging wild plants and recycling stuff that people leave on curbsides. The nutrient and mineral rich wild plants helped heal him of debilitating illness.

One of our readers recommended the Mr. Money site.
“Hi there. If we haven’t met, my name is Mr. Money Mustache. I’m the freaky financial magician who retired along with a lovely wife at age 30 in order to start a family, as well as start living a great life. We did this on two normal salaries with no lottery winnings or Silicon Valley buyout windfalls, by living what we thought was a wonderful and fulfilling existence. It was only after quitting the rat race that we looked around and realized why we had become financially independent while most people, even with higher incomes, end up stuck needing to work until age 65.”

  1. I do not know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else
    experiencing issues with your website. It appears as if some of the text on your content
    are running off the screen. Can someone else
    please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them as well?

    This might be a problem with my browser because I’ve had
    this happen before. Many thanks

    • You are the first to write about having this problem; everything looks normal on my browsers. I think it is probably a problem with your system.

  2. Hi! I’ve been following your web site for a long time now and finally got the courage to go ahead and give you a shout out from
    Atascocita Tx! Just wanted to mention keep up the fantastic job!

  3. Rather than paying attention to a guy that sounds like a shifty used car salesman, why not try the following web site?

    Take a good long look at their plant database, particularly the edible and medicinal plants.

    Far more information, and far more useful.

    And a whole lot less high pressure sales tactics.

    • Yes, that’s a good site, and their Woodland Gardening book looks interesting, but keep in mind that I only have so much time in a day to devote to creating blog posts. This one probably took me 2 hours or more. I’ve linked to numerous useful sites that should prove helpful.
