I’ve had the same cheese slicer since college, which is about 20 years now. The wooden handle broke six months ago.
I haven’t replaced the slicer because it still works and I haven’t been in a store that sells such things.
And oddly enough, using this silly slicer makes me smile.
The slicer still does the job; it’s just a little awkward to hold.
I don’t think so. The cheese slicer works, makes me smile, and reminds me of my choice to live a frugal lifestyle.
Examples of a frugal lifestyle:
- Finding a second use for an item
- Buying used things
- Borrowing or swapping instead of buying
- Making something last longer
- Using less
- Finding value – finding a less costly, long lasting alternative
What do you think? What does frugal mean to you?
