Don’t worry about being “unfrugal” once in awhile.
On occasion, I’ve seen some personal finance/frugal bloggers lament some purchases or practices that to the community might appear “unfrugal.”
Friends, being frugal doesn’t mean pinching pennies every second of every day, going without things that give us joy or somehow enhance our lives. No ma’am — we’re frugal in other areas so that we can afford to enjoy some of life’s indulgences!
What is better — having a huge bank account full of money (that you are pained to spend, no doubt) and avoiding purchasing something because it doesn’t fit the frugal label … or doing your best to be good stewards with the money God gave you and buying things now and then that improve your life?
Take care of your bills and savings and be generous with others and yourself. That’s the whole point of frugal living, isn’t it?
