Want to save money like the Frugalistic Mom? It’s not hard at all.
Saving money frugalistically means spending less without letting it take over your life. The secret to frugalistic saving is to take advantage of all the shortcuts available online these days, make across-the-board changes that don’t add to your weekly burden, and — most important — concentrate on the money-saving techniques that you enjoy and that make sense for your family. This means that you don’t have to have a color-coded spreadsheet and 10-inch-thick coupon binder — unless you want to. And you never have to make homemade laundry detergent or cut your own hair, unless, say it with me, you want to. There are so many easy ways to cut your spending that no one has to spend hours doing stuff they hate in order to save.
