I love to save money where I can. It is sort of a hobby, even a game, for me to see where I can pinch off dollars. But often that is so I can spend the saved dollars on things we need (or want) to spend money on.
Being a died in the wool do-it-yourselfer who also likes simplicity, I have often hit the wall on one aspect or the other. Sometimes something that is frugal is definitely not simple, at least for some and at least at first.
