    Congratulations Kerry on a terrific website. Just discovered it. Thank goodness that “frugal” is no longer a dirty word. Here are some of my own thoughts.

    Frugality is not at all the same as cheap. It simply means getting the best value for your money. Usually it involves thought, planning, research, and patience.

    There’s a saying “time is money” which I believe is misleading. The truth is, time is more valuable than money. Rich or poor, we all have 24 hours in a day. The more time you can spend doing enjoyable activities (i.e. not working), the richer you will be. And the less you spend, the less you need to work.

    The sooner you learn to live frugally, the less you will need to save for your retirement.

    I became a convert to frugal living when I met my partner, Randy, 13 years ago. We are Canadians, in our 50’s, no debts, working part-time, and traveling a lot (frugally of course with a camper-van). We virtually eliminate the expenses of accommodation and restaurant meals, thereby traveling costs very little more than staying at home.

    We stood beside a couple who stayed at the Grand Canyon’s El Tovar Lodge at upwards of U.S.$300.00 per night, admiring the exact same view. We had spent the night camped for free in the forest less than a mile away. Do you think their view was any better than ours? More examples can be found at my website, http://www.frugal-rv-travel.com.

    (Kerry, just to let you know the link through from this page to the National Post Network doesn’t seem to work. I had to leave your site and key in the National Post’s URL to read it.)
