{why I choose to be frugal}

003The most important decisions we make in life are often also the hardest.  It’s not always easy to make “frugal” living choices.  So, occasionally I need a little reminder of why I’ve made the choice to live this way.  I thought I’d share my frugal mission statement with you today.

Plus, it’ll be nice to have it here for me to look back on whenever I’m feeling a little less “frugal-y”.  😉

The reasons I choose to make frugal choices for my family are:

To save money for the future.

To be purposeful in re-using what is already made.

To be able to afford to stay at home with my children.

To save money towards paying off debt that we owe.

To be a wise steward of the limited budget we have.

To save money so that we can give more to others. Luke 12:15 really hits home for me here. Jesus says, “And he said to them, “Take care, and be on your guard against all covetousness, for one’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.”

This life has nothing to do with the things that you own.
