Tightwad, frugal, penny-pincher, cheap! Do you see these terms as positive or negative? At one time I probably thought someone who was frugal was like my grandmother always talking about the Depression. Oh brother, here we go again! But all my life, my mom or my grandma re-used things like paper bags, bread bags, plastic wrap, aluminum foil. I thought it was so dumb! But now I see why. Partly as en effort to be more responsible about what goes into the landfills and party to be frugal. I even learned that sometimes it is more cost-efficient to *gasp* buy the smaller container of something! Hope you have a great weekend! Here is a link to more Frugal Friday discussion.
