Default Ways that you save money or frugal living

whats the difference between a person who is a cheap skate versus a person that is trying to spend his money in a smart way?


I'll start with one thing makes me frugal,

I used to get $50-60 dollar haircuts every 2 weeks. I always want my hair to be cut with a specific hairstyle.

The problem is, when you move its hard to find a hairstylist that can understand your wants and needs. So an expensive haircut does not mean you will be satisfied. Also you have to schedule ahead of time and deal with showing up on time to your appointment......I don't pay for cheap cuts, long lines and barbers just want you to come in and leave as fast so they dont pay attention to details.

So what did I start doing? I started learning how to cut my own hair.
Yep i bought the shaver at the store for 30 bucks and a hand mirror and ever since then I never went back to another salon.

Also I never have to worry about finding a hairstylist that will give me a specific cut.

I collect unused barf bags from the planes when I travel.

I get to use them around here frequently.

I eat other peoples unfinished plates left around food courts and abuse the sample tables at Costco for free calories. I also drink the water that hot dogs were cooked in to not waste precious nutrients.

Kidding.

Real talk though, I also cut my own hair. I've been doing it for years and its not overly complicated. The savings add up.

As do I. Once I recovered from the agony of my Mother taking a razor to my hair when I was much younger., I did two things.

I left home. I grew my hair long.

I have learnt to cut/trim that hair to keep it healthy.

I use other methods to buy cryptos.

Sometimes I take the Ferrari out for a drive instead of the Lamborghini

The Ferrari is a bit better on fuel. Have to save the pennies.

Now that is some serious efforts to save moula.


With the Challenger tank, we stay in rather than travel. Solar power helps considerably.

I'm picturing a green bean driving a solar powered space shuttle

Anyway I'll give you a serious answer:

- Cut my own hair since high school
- Never finance anything
- Buy foofoo's on purpose when I'm not buying to resell
- Drive a cheap car that's good on gas with low taxes and cheap insurance
- Avoid anything other than auto insurance
- Maximize "free" shipping supplies from couriers using stealth techniques

Can't think of anything else this early.

Should you have financed a house atleast?........since the house goes up in value.....

solar power savings is somewhat debatable..........the cost of solar panels + installation is quite expensive......

you will have to reach a breakeven point to pay off the solar panels first b4 saving any money......

I am not sold on solar panel tech if you live in a small house with a small electric and gas bill.

If you live in a huge house and in an expensive area where the cost of utilities is really high......their might be some justification to switch to solar panels.....

I've seen too many solar panels fall through people's roof after a year or two. I'm not really sold on them either.

I had the $ available, so I don't understand how committing to a 15/30 year loan where interest would build up and where I'm also required to have HO insurance would have been a better option. Bypassed banks/brokers and saved a ton of money.

I could drive out $50-60 in fuel just TRYING to find someone that charges that much to cut a mans hair. And fail.

Maybe get a stylist to cut it, instead of one of your paid whores? lol

City life vs. country life, maybe? IDK. I thought that sounded really expensive too. Best barber in town charges $15 last I checked.

When I go out for an afternoon drive, sometimes I use the helicopter instead of the Learjet.

Learjets require two pilots, so I have to hire somebody to sit in the other seat, choppers only need one pilot.
