Frugality: Live normal, save money

When you search the internet for a definition of frugality most say it means "the quality of being frugal, sparing, thrifty, prudent or economical in the consumption of consumable resources such as food, time or money, and avoiding waste, lavishness or extravagance". For me frugality stands for freedom and independence. A more down to earth way of explaining frugality is "to create or fix things yourself, don't waste anything and do not buy any stupid crap you don't really want or need".
