Write: What It Means to be Frugal

Here is the exercise for today:
Think of something that you are frugal about, or something you splurge on. Why do you save/spend money on that item? How often do you use it?

There are piles on the floor,
overflowing from the bins and boxes
they’ve been assigned to.
Random bits, leftovers, things inherited.
From this chaos, my creations are born.
Thrift finds and garage sale surprise
blossom, forming new life
saved from the landfill.
No extra packaging or instructions
come with my new beauties.
Life created wastes nothing.
