Minimalist

                                             Good Morning Family Happy End Of Summer



What's the difference between being frugal and being a minimalist.

 
Frugality/Cheapskate
is focused on eliminating expenses that are unnecessary.
 
Minimalist is focused on eliminating complexity, especially the complexity that comes from possessing many "things". I always thought of it this way:

Minimalist = structuring your life in such a way that you can get along with the fewest amenities.

Frugal/cheapskate = arranging your spending so as to pay the lowest price to attain the things you need or wish to acquire.

For example, it is frugal to find the lowest priced deal on cellphone service. It is minimalist to live without a cellphone.

Of course, it is counterproductive to be one of those without the other, so most people leaning in that direction strive for a blend of the two enterprises.

                                     So are you a Frugalist/minimalist or cheapskate? 
                                               
                                                Have a great Cheap Cheetah Day!
