Happy Frugal Year isn't about being mean, miserly or unhappy - it's about saving money where you can, in order to be able to afford to splurge where you want to!

DON'T LET ALL THE ADVERTISING HYPE MAKE YOU SPEND!
Advertising has the sole purpose of making us spend our money - and it usually works. Of course we have to be receptive to it, so if you feel worried, depressed, low, anxious or ugly - then those make-up and fashion adverts press all the right buttons! Then you go to the shops, max out your credit card, add to your debt and feel even more stressed, miserable, worried...I've just read a great article on how to train yourself to avoid this cycle - Knowing Your Triggers Can Prevent Emotional Spending and it really tells it like it is (but you knew that already). Furthermore, if you need proof that we can all look a little, well, plain, sometimes, then take a look HERE - these celebrities are definitely not immune to looking a little less than gorgeous and they have all the money and all the people it could possibly take to look glam!
