How to Make 

Frugal living isn’t about giving up the "good life" it’s about living smarter so that you can stretch your dollar. Then you will have some extra resources to put toward those special things you would like to do. It can include do-it-yourself skills, maintaining your home and car, gardening, preserving food, using coupons, and a multitude of other things. It is a matter of becoming aware of what you can do to save a dollar or reuse a resource. 

Learning to sew or grow your own vegetables, or any one of these suggested things can be a creative, rewarding, and fun experience. The feeling of self-reliance that comes with doing things can be a great reward in and of itself. So get started! You may find a new hobby as well as some extra satisfaction along the way.
