Recently, I asked on my Facebook Page for people to finish this sentence: “Frugal people never pay for _________.” Here were 7 things people said over and over again that I wholeheartedly agree with:
I get so many magazines for free that I never need to pay for subscriptions. (Want to get free magazine subscriptions? Read my post on How to Get Magazines for Free.)
It’s been a long time since I’ve paid for toothpaste. By combining coupons with sales, I can almost always get more toothpaste than we ever need — for free!
There are so many great alternatives to paying for cable TV that are much less expensive — Amazon Prime movies and shows, Hulu, Sling TV, YouTube TV, and more!
(Need some motivation to get rid of cable? Check out this post on how one of my readers saves $700 on cable and how they still watch great TV.)
We never, ever buy brand-new cars because they devalue by such a high percentage in the first year. Instead, we try to buy used cars that are in fantastic shape with low mileage that are only a few years old.
What would you add to this list? What do you never pay for? What do you think a frugal person should never pay for?
