Mr Money Mustache

February 7th, 2012 at 10:23 pm

This is an early retirement blog that I found recently. I really enjoy it. I've been slowly reading old posts and came accross this one today.

http://www.mrmoneymustache.com/2011/06/21/frugality-as-a-mus...

It's titled Frugality as a Muscle and basically is a good answer to those financial people who pooh-pooh frugality and instead say it's a waste of time to do things to save a few cents here and there and we should just focus on the big items, like mortgages and buying new cars etc. All the Amy Dacyzyn haters. Smile

At the end he describes his perfect frugal day. I think this is the perfect idea for a blog post from anyone who wants to join in. Describe your perfect frugal day. I'm going to think about it and then write mine soon.

I finished reading my book One Magic Moment by Lynn Kurland. Romance - excellent, love her books.

    My DH and I follow his blog. It's entertaining and has some spot on advice.

    Perfect frugal day is one I try to follow about 5 days out of 7:

    Up early to have coffee with DH. Leave for my morning 5 - 6 mile run. Return and clean up, then out the door to our local university where I'm enrolled as a life long learning student at a cost of $230 a year. Today, as an example, I attended a lecture on the upcoming political campaign called "See How They Run" and a second called "The History of Broadway."

    Stopped at the library on the way home to pick up books for some of my upcoming book clubs. Returned home to do a blog post, practice my Spanish, read, practice piano and start dinner. Piano lesson after dinner, then wine and some conversation with DH before bed.

    Oh, and a nap in there somewhere around midday!

    Sorry - should have added my piano lessons are through our local city community center, not private, paid up front, and average about $10 a lesson.

    My perfect frugal day happens pretty often.

    Get up, watch the news, get ready for work, pack a lunch, work, play Mahjong at noon, work, come home, make dinner, watch the news, do a few tasks (laundry, cooking for next day, etc.), play some computer games, go to bed early and read!

    On a weekend I would fit in grocery shopping, visiting my kids, watching a Netflix movie or free DVD, taking a long walk if the weather permits.
