Re: Joe Dominguez's Wife Says Frugality Ain't So Hot

Quote:
She cheerfully concedes that now that she’s 60, her need for creature comforts “has probably doubled. I actually have a comfortable bed now, and I go to the gym. I even have a cell phone!”

Robin says her sense of spiritual fulfillment is what leads her to feel she has “enough.”

The bottom line: If that latte takes up a half-hour of your life, make sure you really enjoy it. Stay connected to the things that make you happy.
- back to the original post... I think this make sense. Being frugal to me doesnt nec. mean depravation, it means allocating resources efficiently and avoiding waste. There is a balance somewhere. OR I wonder if she is setting up these statements for ANOTHER book?

I wonder how Amy Dachyzznnn (Sp for sure) is doing these days. I wonder if she still is reusing tin foil and making popsicles out of empty grape jelly jars?

my favorite is one I read about someone never buying laundry soap. rather raids the recycling bins for old containers and rinses out the remaining soap.

Re: Joe Dominguez's Wife Says Frugality Ain't So Hot

Like CT said somewhere else, it's all about balance. We will donate about $3k this year, we turn the lights out when we leave a room, but we also enjoy our gourmet breakfast bagels and french roast coffee after church on Sunday without a moments hesitation or guilt. It's $12 (or 30 minutes after tax) well spent.
