Tip # 60 Kiss the Jones' Goodbye!
Something that you HAVE to do when you choose to live a frugal lifestyle is STOP COMPARING YOURSELF TO OTHERS! This is something that we (as a society) do way too often, and it is way to easy for us to fall into the trap. The bottom line is that you never know what kind of financial situation the "Jones'" are in! Who cares if they just bought a new house, a new car, and always go shopping for new clothes? They could be up to their eyeballs in debt and not have a penny in savings!
Besides, being frugal isn't about saving more money than other people, it's about reaching your own financial goals and your own happiness.
