What do I mean by frugal living?

This question came up as I was telling a buddy – Neerav – about this blog the other day. It made me realise that a working definition of frugal living might just come in handy.

The inspiration for starting this blog was a desire to start living a more simple life and to reduce my impact on the planet.

Thus this blog is a place to think about and discover ways:

  • of reducing dependence on retail therapy
  • to stop stop buying unnecessary stuff
  • to eat better and more sustainable food
  • to find ways of living a more uncomplicated life
  • to save money

So frugal living is really about finding a more simple and sustainable way of living.
