Kris and I walked to the grocery store this morning. This saved us money in at least three ways:

  1. Walking two miles helped me get some exercise as I move toward better fitness.
  2. Walking limited what we could buy. We were forced to stick to our grocery list. I wanted to buy a big jug of orange juice, but I refrained. I didn’t want to carry it home.
  3. We did not drive a car. (Though, admittedly, the two-mile round trip would only have cost about 72 cents.)

Nothing earth-shattering. Most steps toward saving money are unglamorous. Frugality is made up of small choices like this.
