Is Frugal Becoming the New Black?

I like how we are beginning to think in the blogosphere (and in the real world!) about money.    Bigger is not always better.  Less can be more.  You aren't defined by what you own.  Debt can suck the life out of you -- avoid it at all costs.

See this Learnvest.com post from June of 2013 that is still attracting comments.

I'm constantly reminding myself that Frugal didn't always mean "cheap."  It derives in part from the Latin word frux, "fruit, produce," and "value, success."  Juicy!    As Vicky Robin says in the audio version of "Your Money or Your Life," -- it's about squeezing all the juiciness out of every expenditure so that your life is as fabulous as possible.
