These days, minimalism and saving money are the rage! No longer only for the poor person, but also for the middle and upper classes. I like to call it being frugal.
Ria teaches very valuable lessons on things we can do to accomplish such, whether we are single, married, with a ton of kids or childless, have a pet or not.
Here you go...
The Whole Happy Life

She no longer buys:
1. Cleaning Products
She found cleaning recipes on Clean My Space.
1 method? Mix water, dish soap and vinegar!
2. Physical Gifts
You do not want to give a present that is going to clutter up the home.
Buy a lesson or course in some kind of skill that the recipient can learn something new from.
3. Unnecessary Kitchen Gadgets
It is pretty bad if you have to have a drawer or 2 in your kitchen for gadgets alone! I am guilty also. Simply think process of elimination.
4. Books and Magazines
Simply borrow from your local library!
5. Bottled Water
Simply use a reliable re-usable bottle and fill with your own kitchen faucet water. Use some lemon juice or another water enhancer to disguise the taste if nasty.
6. Clothes You Really Won't Wear
What dress are you going to get more wear out of? A red dress or a black dress? Of course the black dress! So, buy the black dress! No closet clutter.
7. Handbags, Accessories and Shoes
Again, only buy what you are going to actually get more use out of. Simple.
8. Air Freshener
To make your house smell good, simply search on Pinterest for simmering potpourri recipes. No chemicals and cheap.
9. Store-bought Sauces and Dressings
The above have a ton of preservatives and sugar. Make your own from scratch or make by following a healthy recipe.
10. Too Many Toys
Children and pets alike have their favorites. No need to have a million toys, if the toys are going to clutter the rooms in your house and collect dust!
