enjamin Franklin has always been an advocate of staying frugal. One situation that always sticks out is how he wore the same shoes often stating that “if you can wear it once more, that’s an additional day you don’t end up spending on the accessory.”
These days, people need to live a bit more stingy life given our current state of the economy. Housing is growing unaffordable, a good pair of shoes cost more than $100, yet most people generate just $100 per day at work. Plus, organic food costs are skyrocketing, and don’t get me started on student loans!
A penny saved, is indeed, a penny earned!
There’s a movement going around called F.I.R.E. = Financial. Independence. Retirement. Early. The FIRE blogs help lay out a discussion on why we need to avoid materialism and live a life full of experiences rather than possession.

Living Stingy and Earning Money
One thing is for sure, if you want to enjoy more out of life, you’ll have to spend a few dollars here and there. Using our top money apps list, where you’ll find an app like Swagbucks, you can earn a bit of side cash doing really simple things like Watching Videos. Better than shopping for videos I suppose.
