Frugal Friday

3 May

“I have three precious things which I hold fast and prize. The first is gentleness; the second is frugality; the third is humility, which keeps me from putting myself before others. Be gentle and you can be bold; be frugal and you can be liberal; avoid putting yourself before others and you can become a leader among men.”
― Lao Tzu

I like to think I am a very frugal person. Plus, I just like saying the word frugal, it’s a goofy sounding word. Paying full price just isn’t in my vocabulary. One of my favorite things to do is see how much I can save with a combined sale and a handy-dandy coupon.

Shopping at SteinMart has been one of my greatest feats of frugality. The store has very nice, high end clothing, at reasonable prices, but I always wait for an additional sale. I bought seven tops, consisting of a few sweaters and blouses for the grand total of $47.43. Each item was already on sale, but a few items had an additional 60% off the sale price. What? Yes, you heard me right. My receipt said if purchased elsewhere, (full price) it would have been $353. I paid $47.43. I think that’s a pretty good sale, wouldn’t you? Yep, I’m pretty frugal.

As for the quote from Lao Tzu, I’d like to think that I am gentle, frugal, and humble also. Well, the humble part, maybe not so much.
