Are you living as frugally as you possibly can? It’s easy to let things go even if at one time we were completely motivated. Here are 21 ideas that you may have never thought of or have completely forgotten about. Many of these ideas are not necessarily about having to reduce your lifestyle to one of poverty, but rather to help you cut back in areas that seem small but will help save you money.

In our home, we follow most of these ideas, but my favorite one is number 18. Last Christmas, my daughter made me several sets of fabric napkins from dish towels. They are wonderful! Click here to make your own!

I try to use regular plates all day long, and if we are just having something simple like chips and a sandwich for lunch, we use a square of deli paper. (I get my box from Sam’s Club. They are about $9 for 1000. Much cheaper than paper plates!)

Living frugally doesn’t have to be painful! These ideas will remind you how to easily do it!
