To me, frugal means AWARE; finding the best buy at the best price; not “fading” or “trending” when I purchase something, but going for the tried and true that will last; making the best of every purchase for long term or function. Now, I am the first to admit that FRUGAL is not a word that I always APPLY to myself or my purchase… I need help, as a former shopaholic and Diva who is too shy to negotiate and bargain!
Now, Broad Z is the Frugal Review Broad. After all, Zippy has been going frugal her entire life! Me? Before I took this last year on sabbatical (meaning quit my job), moved into a senior (55+) apartment building, and attempted to live on $1,300 a month, Nordstrom’s and I were attached at the hip. We were related! If it had a designer label, it was MINE! Whole Foods was my haven. Diva Hair Salon was my den where instead of blowing on a pipe I had my hair blown dry for a hundred plus dollars!
AFTER THE MOVE
I discovered FRUGAL as the best six letter word I know besides Review and Broads! AND THEN AARP Member Advantages with tons of discounts and benefits FOUND ME! I was saved!
