Do people like to call you a cheapskate? Well, they’re definitely wrong!
In reality, they are just jealous! After all, you have the ability to be frugal, and you end up being a much better shopper than they are. The term “cheapskate” is also not used fairly when it comes to frugal people, as just because you like saving some money, it does not mean you are cheap, just as a bigger price tag does not always mean better quality or service. Taking advantage of a deal is not being unnecessarily cheap.
Choosing the cheaper option is sometimes the best thing you can do for your situation and your wallet, not to mention it may just be the best-quality item too. It makes no sense to pay more for something of the same quality, and sometimes it turns out that the cheap option is way better than the expensive one. So why would you be spending more on the item?
We’ve gathered some of the best examples of how you’re a wise shopper, as well as some frugal tips for those of us who don’t like to spend more money than necessary on our purchases!
