I admit it, I’m frugal, but I live life the way I want and enjoy every minute.
Here are a few of my suggestions for the 50+ generations who want to live a minimalist lifestyle.
My feeling is why spend more money if you don’t need to. I do not feel deprived or poverty-stricken. I have a fulfilling life on a shoestring budget.
Being a “minimalist” has helped me have a better life. Doing without material luxuries and status symbols to impress others is a smart strategy for me to have room for true meaning in life.
