that's a compliment

you're cheap: thank you, that's a compliment


Sometimes, I get told that I’m cheap; I choose to take it as a compliment. It means that I’m good at stretching a dollar and am conscious about saving. Over the years, I’ve actually started to change my thinking in that, when I’m around someone who spends freely, without thought or worry, I find it somewhat disturbing. Now, I’m not saying that you should save so much that you can’t enjoy life; I’m just saying that enjoyment can be a mindset and you can most certainly enjoy life and do it frugally.
