There are some advantages to being a Thrifty Diva and not all of them are financial achievements. Some of the advantages are a state of mind that allow us to be more level headed about the things we want and how to get them. Here are three such advantages frugal women have been known to attain.
Does Saving Money Define You?
When you are a spender your latest acquisition defines you. When you are a thrifty diva you build your self worth on the money you can save your family. Did you save fifty dollars on groceries? Have you found free entertainment or family experiences? Have you been able to furnish your home beautifully for less than a few hundred dollars? These are the experiences you take pride in. You aren’t looking for the latest and greatest. You keep a level head and work with what you have.
Money is Not Your Enemy
You do not view money in terms of having enough or not enough. Money is a tool that works for you. You use it as such. You determine what you will pay for an item and bend circumstance to meet your needs. For those few bills you can not bend to your will, you still take measures to lower your cost by lowering your usage or by picking a frugal package. You rule your money instead of the other way around.
You don’t NEED a certain item to be happy. For the most part a generic or more reasonable financial option is just fine for you. You can delay your gratification for an object if it is in your best interest. You can even go without an object if it doesn’t meet your financial criteria. In the end you control your financial destiny, not your money.
In your back to school shopping frenzy, don’t forget that you can get great deals on healthier options for your children to eat when you send them back in their cute new school clothes and cool back packs. Sprouts is a great spot for healthier foods and organic foods at a fantastic price. And, if you are done with your school shopping or don’t have children who are going to school, you can still get these great deals

I haven’t made Office Depot one of my back to school shopping spots in the past. My decision had nothing to do with deals being good or bad. It was just one more stop to make with two little ones. I opted before just to pick up back to school related items when I was grocery shopping or at Target also picking up other things. So, I got more bang for my time spent out at one place. But, I can’t resist this time, partly because the deals are so good and partly because the littles are older and can handle and extra stop! Be sure that you check your local weekly ad because sale prices vary from region to region. So, while I’m sure the deals are great wherever you live, there’s no guarantee that they will be the same ones you see listed here.
