7 Tips To Be A Frugal Minimalist (A Way To Achieve Intentional Living)

If you’re living a frugal lifestyle, you might be interested in learning more about the idea of “minimalism.”

Minimalism is the practice of living with less stuff.

It’s a way to achieve intentional living and ultimately happiness by reducing the number of things that take up your time, space, and energy.

In short, it’s all about having less stuff so that you can focus on what matters most.

But minimalism isn’t just about throwing away all your stuff.

It’s also about knowing what to keep and what to get rid of.

And this is where frugal minimalism comes into play.

Frugal minimalism is the act of being frugal, but only keeping things that are useful and meaningful (and getting rid of anything else).

In this article, I’ll take a look at 7 things I’ve learned about frugal minimalism from my own experience as well as from some other people who have been there before me.

What Is Frugal Minimalism?

Frugal Minimalist - This is picture of the dining room. The walls are plain and not painted. Two chairs can be seen. The chairs are black. The table is black, as well.

Frugal minimalism is a lifestyle that focuses on maximizing the value of your money.

It’s about spending less and making sure you’re getting the most out of what you buy.

Frugal minimalism can be achieved through simple changes like downsizing your life, shopping at thrift stores, or investing in quality items that will last for years.

Frugal minimalism is about living with fewer possessions and spending less money.

But it’s also about finding ways to make your things last longer and do more for you and making sure your purchases are worth it!

5 Benefits Of Frugal Minimalism

Frugal Minimalist - This is a picture of a craft. The scissor above is yellow. There are a lot of papers. The papers have different colors. A flower can be seen at the middle.

We’re all in search of a balance between spending and saving, but it’s easier said than done.

Fortunately, there’s a new way to think about your finances that doesn’t make you feel like you need to give up everything.

Frugal minimalism is a way to live with fewer things and more money in your bank account.

If you want to learn more about minimalism, specifically frugal minimalism, here are five benefits of this lifestyle that could change your life:

1. Stay On Budget

Frugal Minimalist - Someone is computing on a paper. It looks like a budget. A pen can be seen on the paper. A black calculator is lying on the table, too. The person encircled figures on the paper.

One of the best benefits of frugal minimalism is that it helps you stay on a budget.

If you’re like most people, you’re probably trying to save money.

And if you’re also like most people, it’s hard to keep track of what’s coming in and going out, especially if there’s a lot of “out.”

But when you use frugal minimalism as your guiding principle for living, it can help you keep track of your expenses and make them more manageable.

If you know exactly what you spend on things like food or clothing, then it’ll be easier to control those costs so they’re not getting out of hand.

2. Less Clutter

Frugal Minimalist - A man can be seen in the picture. The room looks like a garage. He is looking at the things. He has on his right hand a white container. On his left hand, he’s looking inside a white box.

It’s a fact that clutter is the enemy of minimalism.

If you have too much stuff, it will fill up your space and make you feel like you need more stuff to fill that space.

And then there’s more clutter.

But if you can keep it all under control with frugal minimalism, then your life becomes easier and simpler.

You don’t have to worry about where to put things, or whether or not they fit into the design scheme of your home (or office).

You can buy what you need when you need it, without worrying about whether or not it will fit into a specific space in your house or apartment.

So go ahead and get that new coffee table!

You won’t be overwhelmed by having too much stuff around because everything has its place.

3. Quality Items

Frugal Minimalist - A woman can be seen in the picture. Her face is not visible in the camera’s angle. She is wearing orange clothes. The things at the middle are orange as well. There’s a bag, a flower in a vase, and fruits.

The most important benefit of frugal minimalism is quality items.

When you’re buying less, you can start to really get to know the value of things.

You’ll learn what’s worth it and what isn’t, so you can make sure that when you do buy something new, it’s going to last.

And because you know what’s valuable, you won’t waste your time or money on things that aren’t worth the money they cost.

This means fewer items will need to be replaced or repaired over time, which is great for your budget!

4. Spending Less On Maintenance

Frugal Minimalist - This is a picture of a money. In the bill, a man is staring. The bills are rolled together. They are tied by a red garter. It is placed vertically on the table.

One of the biggest benefits of frugal minimalism is that you’ll spend less money on maintenance.

The reason for this is simple.

If you’re not buying stuff, then there’s nothing to maintain.

Think about all the things you have to keep up in your life, whether it’s your car or your house, or even just a monthly subscription to Netflix.

These things cost money and take time to maintain, which means that you’re losing both when you choose not to buy them.

5. More Relaxed And Stress-Free

Frugal Minimalist - A woman can be seen in the picture. She is sitting on the sofa. She is smelling the aroma from her cup of coffee. She is by the window. Her hair is blonde.

Frugal minimalism is a way of living that encourages the use of fewer resources, which can help you relax and reduce stress.

This can be associated with simple living, more specifically frugal simple living.

When you’re constantly surrounded by stuff you don’t need, it’s hard to focus on what’s important.

You’ll always be worried about having enough to eat, or not knowing where your next pair of socks is going to come from.

But when you live frugally, this isn’t an issue.

The more things we own, the more time we spend cleaning them up and looking after them.

This can be very stressful!

When we have less stuff around us, we don’t have to worry so much about keeping it clean or making sure nothing breaks down while we’re out doing other things.

7 Tips To Be A Frugal Minimalist

Frugal Minimalist - This is a picture of a minimalist bedroom. The sheets on the bed and the pillows are white. A bedside table has no things on it. A white lamp is pinned to the wall. A magenta sofa sits on the other side.

Just like extremely simple living, being a frugal minimalist is all about doing more with less.

It’s not about having the latest and greatest, or spending tons of money on stuff that you don’t need.

It’s about finding the most efficient way to get things done without spending a ton of money.

So here are seven tips to help you become a frugal minimalist:

1. Don’t Buy Things Just Because They’re Cheap Or On Sale

Frugal Minimalist - This is a picture of a store. The store has a group of things that are on sale. There are a lot of items. You can see jars of different colors. Tags are also placed near the items.

One of the first mistakes frugal minimalists make is buying things just because they’re cheap or on sale.

It’s tempting, but resist!

You’ll end up with a bunch of stuff you don’t really need and will never use, and it’ll just clutter up your home.

Instead, look at what you already have in your home and think about ways to reuse it or repurpose it.

If there’s something you need that you don’t have, ask yourself whether there’s something else in the house that could work instead.

Think about whether there’s an alternative that would be cheaper and easier to obtain than what you’re looking for.

This strategy will help keep your purchases down and make sure that each thing you buy is something worth having!

2. Buy In Bulk

Frugal Minimalist - A woman can be seen in the picture. She is holding on a basket of vegetables. She is in the market. There are a lot of people buying in the market. She is smiling widely.

If you’re a minimalist, there are certain things that you just don’t need.

One of those things is to go shopping for items on a regular basis.

To cut down on costs and save time, try buying in bulk.

This will allow you to have the essentials on hand at all times so that when you need them, they’re there for you.

And you won’t have to waste money on something that’s not necessary!

3. Find Ways To Save Money

Frugal Minimalist - A lot of things are lying on the table. A scientific calculator has the black color. A small notebook can also be seen. A metallic pen sits on the right side. And a rolled bills are placed on the left side.

You can’t be a frugal minimalist if you’re not saving money.

You may already be doing this, but maybe you could find a new way to save that you haven’t considered before.

Maybe you can cut the cord and ditch cable, or go to a cheaper gym with fewer amenities.

The more ways of saving money you find, the less you’ll need to make in order to live comfortably.

Here are some specific tips for saving money:

4. Buy Things That Last

Frugal Minimalist - This is a store for clothes. A woman is shopping for clothes. She is wearing a long-sleeved coat. She is looking at the tops that are hanged in an area. Lights can be seen in the picture.

As a minimalist, you believe in buying things that last.

When you buy something, you want it to be the best version of itself, no matter what the price tag says.

But there are so many things out there that claim they’ll last forever.

How do you know which ones are worth your time and money?

The truth is, it’s hard!

The key is looking at the materials used in making each item.

If they’re high-quality materials like leather or metal, chances are good that those items will last longer than items made from other materials (like plastic or cardboard).

And if an item is made from materials that are less expensive than what you typically see in similar products, chances are good that it won’t last as long either.

5. Buy Secondhand Things

Frugal Minimalist - This is a picture of thrift stores. A lot of clothes can be seen. A woman and her son is walking by the area. There are a lot of people that can be seen in the picture. A blue plastic is stretched up to provide shelter for shoppers.

The best way to become a frugal minimalist is to buy secondhand things.

You can get almost everything secondhand, including clothes, furniture, and appliances.

There are many benefits of buying used items instead of new ones.

First, you will save a lot of money because you will not spend too much on the item.

Second, you will help the environment by recycling old stuff that is still useful instead of throwing them away.

6. Take Advantage Of Freebies And Coupons

Frugal Minimalist - This is a picture of the surface of a black table. On table are coupons. The coupons have numbers on it. The coupons are red and white. There is also a strange looking green things at the center.

If you’re a minimalist, you likely have decided to be frugal because you want more cash in your pocket.

But there’s a way to have your cake and eat it too.

Take advantage of freebies and coupons!

We all know that freebies are great.

But did you know that many companies will send you coupons if you sign up for their email list?

It doesn’t cost anything, so why not give it a try?

Make sure you’re always on top of what’s available in your area and when, so you can get the most out of your money.

7. Live Within Your Means

Frugal Minimalist - A couple is seen in the picture. They are hugging each other. They looked like they just moved into a new house. They are boxes on the bed. The walls are painted white.

One of the biggest things you can do to be a more frugal minimalist is to live within your means.

You don’t have to have the most expensive things in order to have an enjoyable life.

You just have to make good decisions about what you buy and how you spend your money.

If there’s something that would make your life better but costs too much, wait until you can afford it.

If there’s something that would add value to your life but not enough value for the price, don’t buy it!

You’re better off saving up for something else or waiting until something better comes along.

It may seem hard at first.

But living within your means can help keep costs down while still allowing you space in your budget for things that are important to you.
