Frugal Living Is A Delightful Lifestyle!
Thinking through how to do things in less time, with less expense and including friends and family in the game is truly quality time. They call me Jonce and I’m glad that you stopped to visit with us. This blog is simply how our friends and generations of our family do things that we need done in the course of a day.
“Frugality may be termed the daughter of Prudence, the sister of Temperance, and the parent of Liberty.” ~Samuel Johnson
We found that living frugally gives us freedom, that being owned by the upkeep and payments involved in possessing unnecessary stuff deters.
We like to have the quality items that matter as opposed to buying a lot of disposable items. Being frugal often includes doing things with intention as instead of doing things because that’s the way it’s alway been done.
frugal living = simple intentional life
That’s not to say that you and yours should do things the same way, but our way will show you what works for us – and what didn’t work – perhaps saving you a learning curve and some money along the way.
We have always worked from home.
There have been many times in the last few decades where outside jobs and income weren’t an option. Knowing how to do things frugally for yourself, and profit from it is mandatory if you are going to get through hard times.
Sooner or later we all go through hard times.
“By sowing frugality we reap liberty, a golden harvest.” ~Agesilaus
Sure there have been outside jobs as well, but our home and the home based businesses were always in the forefront. In addition earning money from home we also grow and can most of our own produce, keep chickens and ducks for eggs; and as you can imagine, cook and bake from scratch. We love crafts, fixing and building things, as well as inventing that little item that will make a task easier.
We love to share what we learn.
We are 4 generations of frugal living do-it-yourselfers… because we enjoy doing things ourselves. Like Dad always says, “If you want things done your way get off your butt and do it.”
You can’t argue with that.
Reading about our way of doing things is meant to spark your own thoughts of how to reach your goals. We are generations of people with sustainable and frugal lifestyles as much out of want as need. If you spend less money for an item as good or better than you can get somewhere else then you have money for other goals. As Grandpa used to say, “That thing on your shoulders isn’t just a hat rack… think.”
“He who does not economize will have to agonize.” ~Confucius
That’s How We Roll.
So, with that thought, pour yourself a drink, pull up a comfortable chair and enjoy…
“A bargain ain’t a bargain unless it’s something you need.” ~Sidney Carroll
