On the inside, I strive to be frugal but many times I succumb to a moment of weakness. I try to reach MrMoneyMoustache levels of frugality but often fall short.
My latest temptation came at a dinner gathering for work. I had several options of frugality from which to choose:
A) Extreme Frugal: Pack a PB&J and bring a canteen
B) Reasonably Frugal: Order a cheap menu item and order a water
C) Un-Frugal: Order an average item with dessert
D) Punch Frugality in the Throat: Order apps, multiple drinks, desserts and an expensive menu item
I walked into the restaurant aiming for Option B but ending up being Un-Frugal with Option C. I guess I still need to hone my frugality skills so I can save more money for investing. My goal is to learn and move forward and try not to give in so easily to temptation.
