Frugality


Frugality is one of the most beautiful and joyful words in the English language, and yet one that we are culturally cut off from understanding and enjoying. The consumption society has made us feel that happiness lies in having things, and has failed to teach us the happiness of not having things.
Manifest plainness,
Embrace simplicity,
Reduce selfishness,
Have few desires

  5. Excellent Point Made Sir...!

    Once people bought because they wanted...

    Now they buy because it is available...

    and small needs.

  8. Minimalism is different from frugality dont you think? Recent minimalist attitude has fetched so much of freedom if not anything else!
