What does it mean to be frugal? To some it is a word that comes to remind of difficult economic times as the dictionary meaning denotes a prudency to spend. But to me it simply takes me back to the "simple times" where life was simple and we didn't turn many "wants" into "needs!" When I think of frugality, I think of the Native American Indians and their simple-yet beautiful way of life: earth, fire and wind! Or the life of third world farmers where the very source of food takes on an entirely different meaning.
