I Really Like this Quote
Being frugal means "you can have anything you want, but you can't have everything you want."
I love this. Because it goes perfectly with my blog. I don't save money because I never want to spend it. I save money by not buying things I don't need or genuinely want because I want to spend it on things I absolutely want. I'm saving money by not buying those $100 jeans because I want to go on a vacation, not because I'm a cheap person.
I just purchased a Groupon this morning for $59 (orig $69 but I had a $10 credit) for 4 weeks of boot camp classes. This is totally worth it to me, not because it was originally $160 and I'm saving 57% or whatever. But because it's something I want to do to be healthier and happier. I made the CHOICE to spend my money on that instead of something less valuable to me because I'm frugal...but not cheap!
