- We both love stories and concepts of extreme downsized living.
- We both feel that living a materialistic life promotes unhappiness yet is perceived to be the opposite.
- Being frugal and living minimal have zero correlation to deprivation.
- Debt-free is awesome
- Being married to your stuff sucks.
While we around here at HoW call it "frugal minimalism," The Frugal Pig labels it "extreme frugality." Whatever the term, the outcome is still the same: downsize your living needs and maximize your ability to live your life in a fulfilling, financially sound manner.
The Frugal Pig community just tries to live large on a budget. It's about changing our lifestyle to stay within a budget to get our of debt and save for retirement. We embrace extreme frugality and sustainable living, but we also just want to have fun. We cover topics like extreme frugality, saving for retirement, cheap ways to travel, how to live in a more environmentally-friendly way, and how to help your neighbors and other people you share the planet with some too.
Promoting a readership dedicated to helping people live better and remove the shackles of consumerism, The Frugal Pig is definitely something I think Home of Wealth readers should get behind. The more people willing to swim against social expectations of materialism will discover higher levels of happiness, time well spent, and less financial stress. Frugality and minimalism unclutter mental real estate so you can focus on what is truly important to you. What will you do with all of your extra mental space?
