I've dabbled in r/frugal, but not enough to see the TRUE FRUGALITY.
I did enjoy the examples they chose from the article:
"Use the stranger test to reduce impulse purchases: when considering a purchase, picture a stranger offering you [the cash value] of the item in question. Which is of greater value you? Which would you choose? —joelbrochill
If you plan on dressing up as a nurse/doctor/chef this Halloween, go to a work uniform supply store. It will cost less than a store-bought costume, will fit perfectly, and can be re-used or donated to charity instead of just getting thrown out. —BetterButterflies
I buy lots of tomatoes on sale, like the ones the stores are about to throw away. I wash them, put them in a blender with garlic and onion, bag them, and freeze the bags to use later for salsas or Mexican rice. —laindiamaria2
I lived in a complex where someone seemed to be moving out at least 2-3 times a month. For some reason people were almost always leaving furniture behind by the dumpster. We'd clean it up and put it on craigslist. We made probably 200-300 dollars in the year we lived there from stuff we found out there. —acer58686
I use this site to find misspelled items on eBay that no one is bidding on. —dashalaka432"
They are all good points/tips, but the one about buying tomatoes on sale made me laugh...isn't that the ONLY way to buy produce???
