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.

Thanks for opening my eyes on the difference between "wants" and "needs". I always thought that they are one and the same. How wrong I was! I always mistook my "wants" to be my "needs".
