Is Procrastination a Useful Tool in Frugalism?


One thing I realised recently is that my tendency to procrastinate can be useful tool in deferring expenditure.

There were several days after Christmas when I meant to go to the shops and buy some things but never got around to it. And then, on thinking about it realised I did not need those things at all.

So procrastination can be a good thing to slow down our acquisitiveness.

  1. I really must sell my Enron shares. And maybe get out of the subprime market. I keep meaning to, but procrastinate. Heh.
