       Also, J.D. Roth at Get Rich Slowly had a great post about When Less is More: The Importance of Perceived Value. J.D. has some great thoughts here, and value is the big difference between being frugal and being cheap.

  2. re: “frugality is the best strategy for our future.” – I would agree! Or at least what frugality can represent – that is, living within one’s budget. A point I like to make is that being frugal does not mean living a spartan lifestyle, just understanding the limits of your finances.

  3. Very true, William! I like to look at frugality as making sure you get the best value out of each dollar—never waste money.
