How to Live a Frugal Lifestyle that can turn you into a Self Made Millionaire 1

Confession time: I’m a cheapskate. Some would say frugal, which sounds much more positive, but in reality I can be a real cheapskate.

I am fairly frugal (though not always), but sometimes I take it too far: I have T-shirts with holes in them, I never buy new clothes, we’re shopping for a new couch because our current one has holes in it, and I ran my current pair of running shoes until the soles fell off.

However, I have gradually learned to be frugal in many ways that I would recommend to others.

I don’t think you should have holes in your couch, and you should definitely replace your running shoes more often than I do, but there are many ways to cut back on spending and live a more frugal lifestyle which could save you more, and create more revenue, also turn you into a self made Millionaire

Why live frugally?

First, because it allows you to spend less than you earn, and use the difference to pay off debt, save or invest.

Or all three. Second, because the less you spend, the less you need to earn and the more you create more revenue for your self and the more your chances of becoming a self made million.

And that means you can choose to work less, or work more but retire early. Or take mini retirements. You have more options with a frugal lifestyle.

I know what I’m going to hear in the comments, because to some people, thus is quite new to them:

I have no life. This is boring. I might as well live in a box. You have to enjoy life sometimes.

All of which you might believe, but I believe I do have a life. A great one. One where I spend time with my family, where I have conversations and read and get outside and do things that are fun and exercise and focus on what’s important and spend my free time the way I want.

So, if you’d like some tips on frugal living, or you want to become a self made millionaire here are just a few, from a cheapskate. Read this stunning guide Becoming a Millionaire | A step by step guide.

Well, I should note that I do most, but not all, of these tips.

1. Go with one car.

Many families have two or more cars. Besides your house, your car is probably your most expensive item. If you can do with one, you should. My wife and I both work, and we have six kids, and yet we have learned to manage with one car.

Going on with one car will help cut wages, and increase revenue. All because you will pay less task, you will not have to spend more money on repairs or servicing and breakdowns. Which is a sure occurrence.

2. Go with a smaller house.

Just because you can afford a larger house, doesn’t mean you should live in one. Live in as small a house as you can and still be comfortable.

I don’t mean you should live in a one-room apartment with a family of four … you know what I mean. You can save thousands a year with a smaller house. Many times, if you get rid of a lot of clutter, you don’t need a large house.

3. Go with a smaller car.

Again, you can save thousands by going with a smaller car. A car instead of an SUV, for example, is a big savings. Be comfortable, but don’t overdo it. You’ll save a lot on gas this way too. Here is also a guide on How you can Save Money Faster even on a tight budget

4. Rent or Buy

This will probably spark a huge debate, as it always does. The thing is, just don’t assume that buying is the better investment. It all depend on the location you’re in and the kind of family and business you run, in fact it depend in a lot of thing that why I could not be specific if you are to buy a home or rent.

Because, in some cases If you calculate the interest you pay on a mortgage, the cost of insurance and maintenance, buying is often much more costly than renting … and if you rent, save money, and then invest the difference, you can actually end up well ahead in the long run.

Now, it’s not a given, so do a comparison, factoring in all expenses. And choose the option that best suit you. Here is a 6 Golden rule of building wealth

5. Look for used first.

If you need something — I mean really need it, not just want it — see if someone you know has one that they don’t use or need anymore. Send out an email to family or friends, or just ask around. You might be surprised.

I was about to buy a new printer for my business center, and then found out that the fairly used laser printer can be counted on and quite 3x time cheaper… saving me close to $100.

You can find a bargain if you look around.

6.Eat out less.

One of the biggest expenses in our daily lives is eating out — the average person spends well over $2,000 a year on eating out. Restaurants are expensive, including fast-food (not to mention the health hazards).

It’s much cheaper to cook your own food. Our family creates a weekly menu, then we buy the groceries, and cook dinner (and lunch) each evening. Lately I’ve even been prepping it in the morning, so it’s a snap when we get home.

7. Eat out frugally.

If you do eat out, check out these money-saving tips.

8. Brown bag it to work.

Instead of eating out for lunch, bring your lunch. More here.

9. Adopt a minimalist wardrobe.

This tip won’t be for everybody, but I try for a minimalist wardrobe. I generally wear jeans or casual pants, a T-shirt or Polo-type shirt, and sandals or shoes.

Plain, solid colors are my favorite. Everything goes with everything else, and I don’t have too many clothes. This saves me the stress of picking out an outfit, and I don’t need as many clothes.

10. Stop online impulse buys.

This was a problem for me before I canceled my credit card. I used to buy online a couple of times a week. Now I buy maybe once every couple of months, using PayPal.

I’m not saying you have to go to this extreme, but realize that online buying can be way too easy (you don’t even have to go to a store) and therefore, we make too many impulse buys. Buy online if you really need something and it’ll save you money, but beware the impulse buy.

11. Don’t shop.

Don’t go to the mall or other shopping area or department store to look around and shop.

Go to a store if you know what you need, and then get out. Many times people go shopping, with a vague idea of what they want, and get caught up buying much more.

Or they go just for fun, as a form of entertainment. That ends up costing a lot. It can really add up. Instead, stay away from shopping areas and find other ways to have fun

To me I see every spare money as a capital to raise money, instead of shopping I put them to investment.

12. Use a 30-day list.

To curb impulse buys, create a 30-day list. When you want to buy something, other than a true necessity (medicine or food, for example), put it on this list, with the date you added it to the list.

And make it a rule that you can’t buy anything for at least 30 days after you put it on the list. And stick to it.

You’ll find that you buy a lot less with this system.

13. Cut out cable.

I’ve talked about how I cut out cable before. It saves me money every month (in my area, about $60, or more than $700 a year), and also forces me to do things like read and have conversations and go outside. Win win.

90% of self made millionaires don’t spend time watching cables. They spend fun time reading and stategezing new ideas that the market will buy. It don’t just improve their financial status it also improve their thinking and intellectual ability.

14. Use the library.

Instead of buying books, check them out. The library often also has a great selection of DVDs (depending on your area), saving you even more. Now who needs cable?

15.Find free entertainment

Find cheap ways to have fun. Entertainment often ends up costing a lot of money, if you go to the movies, buy concessions, or go out at night, go to the bar, etc.

The average person spends about $1,800 a year on entertainment (not including eating out).

Now, I’m not saying you shouldn’t have fun … but there are cheaper ways to do it.

16. Frugal exercise.

Exercise is important, but it doesn’t have to cost a lot of money. Instead of going to the Gym you can go on morning road walk, football, and other home based free excursions.

17. Stay healthy.

Easier said than done, I know, but staying healthy can save you tons of money on doctor’s visits, hospital bills, and medicine over the long run. An ounce of prevention, and all that. Eat healthily, and exercise. Simple and effective. Remember that Health is the real Wealth Wealth.

18. Commute by bike.

Even if you own a car, commuting by bike will save you gas, and get you in shape at the same time. I highly recommend it. Depending on your location.

19. Carpool or ride the bus.

OK, you don’t want to bike it. So find a friend or neighbor who works near you, and arrange a carpool. Or take public transportation. Simple advice, but something a lot of people ignore.

20. Walk.

Often we drive to the corner store, or to a school that’s less than a mile away. Leave a few minutes early, walk, burn some calories, and save gas. And create and Avance for you to save your T.Fare

21. Sell your clutter.

This is not so much saving money as making it, but the frugal, simplifying cheapskate, like myself, will want to declutter and make a few bucks doing it. Hold a garage sale or sell it on eBay. It’s amazing what some people will buy.

22. Frugal gifting.

Gifts can cost a lot of money over the course of a year. Look for ways to do it cheaply. Make a gift, or give a consummable. My family enjoys getting and giving cookies, or hand made gifts, like beads, necklaces, bags.

23. Quit smoking.

Not the easiest way to save, I know. It’s hard. But My friends did it, and so have many, many others.

Not only will you save on cigarettes (which are expensive over the long run), but also associated costs (I used to buy a soda or beer to go with my cigarettes) … and of course the huge, long-term medical costs.

In less than 2 years of not smoking, you can saved well more than $3,000.

24. Alcohol in moderation.

If you drink one beer or a few beers a day, that adds up to big money each month. Some drink even more than that. It’s expensive. If you can cut your drinking to the occasional party, and once in awhile with friends (not all the time), you’ll save tons.

You have to know that Millionaires don’t spend things that are not productive.

25. Sweets in moderation.

Desserts and sweet snacks give us lots of calories with no nutrition. And we pay a premium price for that, in dollars and in our deteriorating health. Cut back on sweets (don’t eliminate them entirely of course) to save money and cut calories.

26. Drink water.

Often we drink lots of calories through sodas, coffee, alcohol, juices, tea, etc. And that costs a lot too. Drink water, save money, save calories. Here are some tips for forming the water habit.

27. Batch your errands.

Instead of running an errand or two every day, batch them into one errand day, and plan your most efficient route, to save gas and time. Also do as much bill-paying online as possible, to eliminate some errands.

28. Stay home.

Becoming a homebody might not sound like a lot of fun, but it really can be. I love staying home with my family. We can do all kinds of fun things at home.

Or I can spend a day alone, if the family is at school, workplace and really enjoy it. It’s quiet and peaceful, I can read or have a good time generating more productive ideas or respond to comments on my blog or write. Staying home can save tons, in eating out expenses, shopping expenses, gas, and incidentals.

29. Stop using credit cards.

Credit cards are not evil. And before you flame me, once again, I realize that they can be used to good purpose. If that’s how you use them, then that’s good, skip this tip.

For others, credit cards make buying too easy, and end up making them buy too much.Not only that, but if you don’t pay your bill in full each month, they will cost you a lot in interest.

The average American with at least 1 credit card has more than $8,500 in credit card debt. Don’t make that mistake.

30. Cancel subscriptions.

With the wealth of information and entertainment online, do you really need magazine subscriptions? With all the news online, do you really need a newspaper subscription?

If you can get DVDs for free or cheap, do you really need a Netflix subscription? Don’t flame me if you think you do need any of these — I’m just asking you to consider whether they’re really essential — the answer might be yes.

Also consider other subscriptions you might be paying for — I’m not saying you should cancel everything, but seriously consider whether they can be canceled without much loss of value.

31. Make your own.

I won’t go into all the possibilities here, but many times we buy things when really, we could make them ourselves for much cheaper if we get a little creative.

Now, this might take a little more time and effort, but it can be fun, especially if you make it a family project. We recently made our own (very simple) bookshelves with only a couple of pieces of lumber, instead of buying them.

If you don’t know how to make something, search for it online. You’ll most likely find some instructions.

With the way the world is becoming more digital, it obvious that 99% of what we pay to learn can be learn freely online, you can even go to YouTube and download full tutorials.

32. Do it yourself.

Instead of hiring someone to do something, try doing it yourself. Sure, it takes some time and effort, but it’s satisfying, and of course cheaper. It’s also educational, if you don’t know how to do it — again, do an online search, read up on it, and give it a go. Frugality freaks are DIYers.

33. Stop paying interest.

I mentioned the interest of credit cards, and auto loans, and mortgages. I consider them a waste of money. I’ve talked about how to live without credit before, and I recommend it for a frugal lifestyle.

Consider any other accounts or loans where you pay interest, and see if you can eventually eliminate as much of these as possible.

34. Reduce convenience foods.

Frozen foods, microwaveable stuff, junk food … anything that’s packaged and prepared for our convenience is not only more expensive than something you cook yourself, but also most likely less healthy. I’m not saying to eliminate these completely, but reduce consumption.

35. Travel frugally.

I actually don’t travel (or haven’t for years), but if you do have to travel, some advance planning can save you money. Airfare is most expensive, usually, so look to buy your ticket in advance, and look for deals.

Also consider train travel. Shop around for car rental rates, as they can vary greatly (or use public transportation). Look for cheaper accommodations, or stay with a friend or relative. Just a note: I do plan to travel, but not until I finally eliminate all of my debt.

36. Cut the cell phone.

This will not be a popular suggestion either. If you don’t like it, move on to the next one. It’s not for everybody.

But think about this: 20 years ago, most people didn’t have cell phones. And miraculously, they survived. A cell phone is not a necessity. It’s a convenience.

When people needed to make a call, 20 years ago, they either waited until they got to a destination (wait to make a phone call?! omg!), or pulled over and used a pay phone or a phone in a business establishment.

37. Cut your own hair.

Again, this one isn’t for everybody. Personally, I use electric clippers to shave my head. It’s easy, it’s cheap, it’s minimalist, it’s care-free.

I don’t worry about my hair getting messed up, or having to fix it in the morning. However, I’m not saying you should shave your head. Many people cut their own hair, in many simple but nice hairstyles, long or short. Saves money, and time.

38. Maintain stuff.

This is a no-brainer, but we don’t often think about it: if you take care of what you have, it will last longer. You’ll then spend less on buying new stuff.

When you buy something worth maintaining, take a few minutes to read the maintenance manual, and create a maintenance checklist that you can attach to the item.

For important things like your car’s oil changes or tune-ups, put them in your calendar.

39. Save energy.

There are little things we can do to lower our power bill. I don’t use a dryer or hot water heater, although those are a little extreme.

40. Save gas.

With the rising price of gas (and no end in sight), fuel has become a major monthly expense for many people. Small things can add up to big savings.

41. Only buy bargain clothing (when you need clothes).

OK, so you’re a cheapskate but you don’t have to buy clothes only when the old clothes have too many arm or leg holes.

You need new clothing. I mean really need it. So instead of buying new, look for thrift shops with good clothes. Or buy new, but only buy the stuff that’s 50% off. Look for the bargains, and you’ll save a ton.

42. Telecommute.

Telecommuting doesn’t necessarily give you your dream job, but it’s definitely a step in the right direction.

But in addition to allowing you to work in your underwear (and who doesn’t have that dream?), telecommuting saves money on gas, on eating out (if you eat lunch at a restaurant), and on buying expensive work clothes (all you need to buy is underwear, right? And no, don’t buy used underwear).

43. Plan ahead.

Sure, easy to say, hard to implement. But if you make it a habit to think ahead to things that are coming up in your life, you can save a lot of money.

For example, if you think about where you’re going to get your meals when you go out to do errands, you can pack a lunch or dinner instead of eating out.

If you pack a big container of iced water, you don’t need to buy expensive bottled water. If you know that a birthday is coming up, you can buy a gift on sale instead of spending more at the last minute.

44. Cook ahead.

If you have one free day a week (or even a month), cook food in big batches and freeze in dinner-sized portions. I don’t do this all the time, but I have done it and it saves money (buying big can often save) as well as time.

You have to plan it out a bit, coming up with a menu and shopping, cooking enough meals for a week or a month.

But once you’re done, your meals each night (and for lunch if you like) are quick and easy. This saves you from eating out or eating convenience food when you’re hungry but too tired to cook.

45. Wash clothes less.

Some people wear clothes and then wash them, but I’ve gotten into the habit of wearing my clothes more than once if they’re not really dirty. I use my nose as a test — I don’t want to wear clothes that smell, but most times the clothes are still perfectly clean. This saves on washing.

I mostly prefer a cloth twice, before I put them up for washing

46. Sun-dry clothes.

When my parents were young, everyone used a clothesline to dry clothes. Now dryers are ubiquitous, because they’re fast. But if you don’t wash a ton of clothes, it’s not that hard to take a few minutes to hang them up. You’ll save a lot in electricity, plus your clothes last longer.

47. Eat less meat.

I’m not saying you have to become a vegetarian (although you could always give it a try), but once in awhile, eat meatless dishes.

Pasta, vegetarian chili (see my recipe halfway down this article), vegetarian Indian or Thai dishes, falafels with hummus and pitas and tomatoes and lettuce … there are plenty of tasty dishes without meat. And as meat is expensive (well, the fresh kind is … Spam is cheap), you’ll save money on meatless dishes. Again, I’m assuming you cook with fresh meat, not canned.

48. Save on groceries.

For my family of eight, groceries is a major expense. With some simple habits, we’ve been able to save a lot of money. See more here.

49. Frugal Christmas.

Christmas is expensive, especially in America (if you live in an area that doesn’t celebrate Christmas with a huge amount of buying, or doesn’t celebrate it at all, skip this tip).

People go on crazy shopping gorges. It’s insane. While it makes the retailers and manufacturers happy, it doesn’t make our bank accounts happy. Break out of the cycle and find cheaper ways to celebrate Christmas.

50. Do you

Above all, you don’t need to deny yourself your personality, that you and that why being frugal or not don’t forget to do you, do the things that makes you happier, do the things you love but be mindful the way you do it.

6 ways to develop the mind for success

6 ways to develop the mind for success

Many people dream of being successful, yet they never achieve it. At times we have all failed.

There are many reasons why you may feel like a failure or that you will never be a success.

These are some of the reasons you might recognize for your own failure.

1. Procrastination

It is normal to procrastinate a little, but often we put off doing difficult or unpleasant task that have to do and end up sabotaging ourselves.

Procrastination is the number one thing to fix. If you want to be successful your mindset will suffer,

when you procrastinate because you are not thinking about being productive or about moving towards your goals, in fact you are doing the opposite by avoiding that.

2. Be Willing to Change

There is nothing more threatening to a success mindset than not being able to change.

6 ways to develop the mind for success

If you cannot change you cannot be anything more than what you already are and therefore cannot be successful.

To be successful, you need to Act as if it were impossible to fail.

you have to be able to embrace change but you also have to be able to accept things as they come on your journey there will be change and there will be surprise or things you didn’t plan for.

To have a success mindset you need to cultivate your ability to adapt to change and to be more accepting which will help stop you being afraid of success.

3. See Failure as Success

The great Chinese general Sun Tsu wrote a book on war tactics.

While you may not be waging a battle, much of his advice can be applied to life situations.

One of his most powerful pieces was to see failure as a form of success.

When it comes to mindset for success, you are on a journey.

You may never achieve it but you are moving ever forwards on that journey by trying, and who knows, maybe success is just around the corner.

But what happens then? If you succeed you will have to pick a new journey or you will be stagnating which means failure.

It is possible for success to actually be failure!.

If you are not seeing success as something fluid rather than a defined endpoint then you will always be a failure.

Each success is really just a goal or stepping stone on the way to the next one.

Success is a journey or a path. Each time you go along that path you may fail.

If failure on that path is the worst thing that happens then it is not so bad.

If you fail you have succeeded in finding the wrong path.

You now know not to try that again because you will fail.

Think of a pathway with three possible directions.

If you have choosen one and found it to be a failure that only leaves 2 more.

You now have 50-50 chances of being successful if you pick the right one. It not gonna be easy, but you just have to Do the Hustle

By failure you have become more educated on your journey and more likely to succeed.

4. Set Better Goals

Success is something you want why?
Why do you want to be successful?

Many times our reasons why, the things that drives us, can make all the difference between actually achieving success or simply struggling towards it.

Procrastination is a sign that you have forgotten “why” behind whatever you are trying to achieve.

Here is a good analogy: you want to have clean clothes but you hate doing laundry.

You can choose to have someone else do it, or simply wear the dirty clothes, however, you have to pay the other person.

If success is clean clothes that don’t cost your money you may put It off because you hate doing laundry but eventually,

a decision will have to be made, by which time you now have to do three times the amount of laundry making the task even more unpleasant.

You have a job interview tomorrow and must have a clean shirt.

By procrastinating about your hatred for laundry you have made the problem worse and you are no closer to success.

You didn’t want the clean clothes enough but now because of the interview, you have no choice.

Your drive to have clean clothes has become important because you really want that job.

Your reason for doing laundry has become something more important, so you do it.

Harnessing that “why” that drive to do things because you need to has a lot to do with the mindset of success.

If you see your goals and success as necessary, even ones you don’t really want to do then you wont have much drive to do them.

tackle each situation by reminding yourself why you are doing it.

5. Embrace Positivity

You may have heard the power of positivity before, when we hear good things it makes us smile and it is part of our evolution that we are programmed to repeat good things and keep doing them.

If you burn your hand on the stove because it is hot you learn that touching a hot stove hurts and so you don’t do it again.

When you speak to or about yourself in a negative manner you should feel the same way yet most of us are guilty of taking to ourselves in a way we should be ashamed of.

A positive self talk is powerful tool for having a successful mindset.

When you use positive reinforcement your brain helps to give you a “can do” attitude.

When you are negative you are actively reinforcing negative ideas and thoughts.

In a way being negative actually helps convince your brain you’re going to fail by giving it the “proof” if needs through self sabotage.

Optimism has been shown in research results studies to actually help you live longer.

If you are optimistic it is likely you are happy.

Happy people tend to be clearer about their goals and look for the good in every situation, even when things go wrong.

How to Make Your Mind Positive

Being positive is actually something you can fake.

The more you choose to be positive, even if it feels fake, the more often your mind will start to naturally choose positivity.

By resolving to be a happier and more positive person who looks for the good you will always be able to see a different side.

This can really help your journey to success when it comes to those obstacles.

The difficulty happens when you reach one of them.

if you are struggling to see a positive side try motivating yourself with some inspirational quote or take a break and come back to it later.

Sometimes when you have focused on a problem for too long it makes it more difficult to see anything.

By reducing the amount of negativity you are likely to see a lot of personal growth and many positive changes in your life.

You may find you are meeting new people and making friends, or that new opportunities come around more often because people are more inclined towards you.

No ones likes a negative person so when given the choice of who they want to work with your positivity will give you an edge.

6. Be Grateful

A surprising trait of successful people is that they don’t tend to look back.

They rarely hold regrets over things that have not worked out in the past and are thankful for their present situation.

Gratitude is something many of us forget to practice without realizing just how much we have.

Part of being grateful is that it motivates you for the future, and motivation is definitely a trait we can recognize in successful people.

Start Valuing

Value or worth is something many of us are guilty of defining by money. But, a lot of money does not mean something has value.

Many new cars today cost a fortune but within a year that price has dropped significantly even if the car hasn’t gone anywhere.

On the other, hand, an old or vintage car that may be decades older in the same condition may cost more.

Both are cars and both have the same monetary value.

However, to the person whose father has recently died and who spent hours

restoring the vintage car that one has much greater value because of the memories associated with it.

When we value experience and learning higher than money we are more likely to be happy and successful.

The reason for this is that the drive for money can be lonely and shallow, meaning that it is much harder to stay on that path.

By valuing the human elements whenever we are working on a task we are much more likely to feel satisfied and complete when it is finished, even if the outcome isn’t what we planned.

In conclusion if you dream of being successful then you need the right mindset.

Success is not just straight pathway, there may be obstacles, failures and more along the path.

The key to a success mindset, however, is to see these as opportunities and to keep going.

You are only a failure if you don’t which means you have to continue somewhere even if it is not path you planned on.

A mindset of failure is often the thing that stops you from being successful which is why positivity is so important.

Only by being optimistic and stay true to your purpose can help you achieve the mindset that will bring you infinite success in life.
