The first step is to be more conscious of your choices.
Some questions to ask yourself:
- Do I really need this?
- Can I make do without it?
- Do I have money set aside for it?
- Am I being resourceful with my options?
- Is there a cheaper way to do this?
- Do I need it now?
When choosing to be thrifty, you become more mindful of your actions. You realize that all of your decisions will impact your wallet and the environment.
