There’s a difference between being FRUGAL and being CHEAP.  Being frugal is a good thing and a sign you’re responsible and smart.  Being cheap is more of a personality flaw that makes people not want to hang out with you.

A new survey asked people if different ways we save money are frugal or cheap.  Here are some highlights . . .

1.  Not taking your turn to buy everyone a round of drinks is . . . CHEAP.

2.  Buying generic food products, like Flakes with Frosting, is . . . FRUGAL.

3.  Re-gifting is . . . CHEAP.

4.  Watering down the soap in your soap dispensers is . . . CHEAP.

5.  Not blasting the air conditioning right now is . . . FRUGAL.

6.  Only tipping the minimum amount, whether it’s 15 to 20 percent, regardless of how good the service was is . . . CHEAP.

7.  Trying to find deals or coupons for everything you buy is . . . FRUGAL.

8.  Eating expired food is . . . CHEAP.
