The phrase "time is money" is as true as it is cliched. That's why, throughout our frugality walk, Eric and I have learned the importance of being frugal with our time.
We treat our time the same way we treat our money. We try to use it wisely and save as much as possible. We try to make sure our expenditures are wise and appropriate. And we lavish it we when a situation calls for it.
So in the day to day of our life, it kind of looks like -
- We don't waste time on activities that take us away from our family, that we do not enjoy, and that could be better spent somewhere else.
- We save time by combining chores and projects. We work together when possible.
- If something requires a large investment of time, we make sure it is truly worthwhile.
- When it comes to spending time with the kids or each other, we spend it recklessly and without abandon.
Are you frugal with your time? Do you agree that the two go hand in hand?
