Are These Things Cheap . . . or Frugal?

posted by Kate -

Even though they're really closely related, there's a WORLD of difference between being cheap . . . and being frugal.  Cheap is bad.  Frugal is admirable.

And a new survey asked people if a bunch of different things you can do to save money fall on the cheap side of the line, or the frugal side.  Here are the results . . .


1.  Not leaving a tip . . . CHEAP.

 

2.  Buying generic groceries or electronics . . . FRUGAL.

 

3.  Carefully tracking how much electricity you're using . . . FRUGAL.

 

4.  Reusing tea bags or coffee filters . . . CHEAP.

 

5.  Calculating your portion of a group dinner bill to the cent . . . CHEAP.

 

6.  Diluting your hand soap with water so it'll last longer . . . CHEAP.

 

7.  Using deals or coupons for everything you buy . . . FRUGAL.

 

8.  Always tipping 15%, regardless of how good the service was . . . CHEAP.

 

9.  Re-gifting . . . CHEAP.

 

10.  Only drinking at home, never at a bar or restaurant . . . FRUGAL.
