Sometimes the word "cheap" is met with such a negative meaning that people often shy away from assuming that label. Truthfully, being cheap isn't all that bad as most who live that way would call it smart budgeting and acumen to save money.
Call it what you want, but most who watch their money closely are the ones who aren't fretting about retirement or being able to take vacation or buy a new wardrobe if that need to because they have the extra income all of us would desire to have.
So how exactly does one live the frugal lifestyle?
You can look at that a number of ways, and there really isn't a right or wrong answer per say. Plenty of money saving superstars will tell you that they buy in bulk, freeze what they can't use right away or they'll be clipping (or in today's day and age using coupon sites online) to save even a few cents to a couple dollars that they'll argue will add up quickly.
But those ideas are the easy ones. Those who save money by the handfuls look far beyond the obvious to really put emphasis on saving. Think outside the box and perhaps start perusing online to buy items you'd normally think wouldn't really fit that internet mold.
