Try putting the words “sexy” and “frugal” together in the same search bar and see what you get. Not much. It seems that the image that most people have of frugality is very unflattering. Old, smelly thrift store clothes. Beans and rice every night for dinner. Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches in a brown paper bag for lunch. Driving around in an old, beat up jalopy.
So, why is it what everyone is being so frugal right now? Because they have to be, not because they want to. Trust me, when things start to pick up and everyone starts making money again, all this “Save as much money as you can” stuff will go out the window. There won’t be any more budgeting, clipping coupons or saving for an emergency fund. None of that seems sexy.
I’ve never understood why most people think that saving money is not stylish. Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, you can still look drop dead gorgeous, still have a social life and keep your fabulous digs and still keep your money in your pocket.
Furthermore, managing your money is taking control of your life. Taking control of your life gives you power. Powerful people are leaders. Leaders makes my temperature rise, my pulse quicken and make skin tingle. Because they are sexy!
