We went out for dinner only once a month. We had birthday parties at home. We had a sandbox in the backyard and we went to the park to play. I kept my car for 14 years. I still have my refrigerator and oven after 26 years. Yes, new appliances would be nice but, these still work. I even buy second-hand or used when I can.

My daughter is even better than I am at this ... she uses shower curtains for drapes, she shops at second-hand clothing stores, she buys sample sizes of paint to paint a wall or furniture, etc. And when it comes right down to it, I would rather spend my money on experiences than things. There are so many ways to spend less and still enjoy life and each other! The Power Of Intentions: Thriving Through Divorce

I recently read a book called "The Millionaire Women Next Door." All the women in the book are millionaires and while they all have different backgrounds and upbringings, they all became wealthy. They are not celebrity millionaires, they are ordinary women, even housewives, that have two things in common: they work hard and smart and they are frugal. And those that are the most frugal are also the biggest givers. They all got where they are by budgeting first, then they got wealthy.

So now, I own my house, I am on early retirement at age 55, I started a successful business, I travel and I help others to achieve financial success, as well.
