Frugal Rock

My lifestyle is what you call frugal. I am quite adept at it.

I'm not broke. I'm not poor. I'm fed and clothed and sheltered and I always make enough money in enough time for whatever I really need. I am happy and enjoying a life of abundance. As a frugalist.

If you exhibit any of the following behaviors, then you may be a frugalist.

-Using lotion as chapstick.
-Using chapstick as lotion.
-Blowing into toothpaste so you can fill it up with water and shake it back and forth to make more toothpaste.
-Same with dishwashing liquid, only you don't have to blow into it.
-Saving all your little soap slivers and then forcing them together to make one sizeable soap mass.
-Reusing cereal milk over the course of 2 or more meals.
-2 or more consecutive meals consisting of cereal.
-Babypowdering your armpits because your out of deodorant.
-Using steam to fashion a makeshift bowl out of a styrofoam plate (if you know about this one you are an A level frugalist).
-Using paper towels as toilet paper.
-Using toilet paper as napkins.

Please feel free to add to this list. Frugalists unite!
