@TUKARAMA I'm sure the team would love hearing about how you stretch your budget while living in another country under the Frugal Chat forum!! Would be interested in your grocery choices compared to US and costs, eating out etc.

New team member. Not sure if I am frugal... but I try to get my money's worth. Compared to my cheap dad, I am a big spender ha ha

Back in the US I was a single dad for 15 years, never made more than $40,000 a year but had a 3 bedroom house, a decent car (Toyota Matrix), and the kids and I went to Orlando for the week of Spring Break for 10 years. The annual Disney/Universal trip was not being frugal - but to pay for it we had to be frugal all year. It was a priority. I learned to live with a budget.

The kids grew up and I retired early (48) and moved to the Philippines. My wife and I live on less than $1,000 a month so we do try to be careful with the money. She is more frugal than I am, but I do ok.

I am Donna and have been Frugal ALL my life. My parents & grandparents grew up during the 20's 30"s and lived in large family of 5-10 children each. Frugal was required. But I don't see it as bad. It just means I have skills others might not have.

I also am trying to lose weight and keep healthy. At the end of 2020 I will be 70. So far-no meds required and I have a history in my family to live to 100. I am active and plan to keep it that way so I can enjoy life. I lived in WV most of life but now am in Maryland.

Donna, Time EST

Hi emoticon
I'm Andee, from Central Wisconsin.
I've pretty much always been frugal all my life.
Being fit - not so much. Chunky baby, heavy kid, obese adult, morbidly obese - oh goodness - at least 30 years. UGH
It's really only been the last 5 or so that I've really been digging deep and striving to understand why my body is the way it is and what, if anything, I can do to change it, improve it, make it more fit than it is... slowly, I think I am making some progress; but there is still so much to learn and so much more to work on.
The name of this team sort of describes me - Frugal & Getting Fit. emoticon
As for my eating plan - let's just say I try to eat right for me --- and I'm still discovering what that might be. emoticon

Andee
Eating RIGHT 4 ME!
T-Tapp! Walking!
Always be grateful for something each day!
Embracing life's changes!

Good Morning everyone! My name is Angela, I'm from L.I., NY. I am on a journey to both lose wgt and on a debt release journey.

I am on a plan I set up for debt relief, and providing I have no unforeseen setbacks, I could be out of debt by 2026. Sounds like a far way off, but not really. I'm really excited about it and praying that there are no set backs for us.

Needless to say, I have been very frugal and prudent with my spending for years. (BTW - The debt is an accrual of unforeseen setbacks!! NOT uncontrollable spending. It happens.) It will be interesting to be in a group to share our tips, techniques and finds!!

Oh, and my eating plan is Dr. Furhman's Eat to Live Plan. Which is Nutritarian.
