  1. We definitely need a vehicle. We don’t live in a city. in fact, we have 2, a car and a truck. The truck is for hauling things like firewood, coal, furniture, etc.

    We already pre-planned our funeral and used our small life insurance policies to pay for them. This should have been on your list. Pre-planning is a good idea. It takes the hassle away from family members and keeps them from fighting over what to do. My mom pre-planned hers and it was a big relief off my shoulders. I have no siblings but she still had 4 and I didn’t need them butting in and fighting over what to do.

    None of the other items on your list applied to us. We stopped going to restaurants 30 years ago because it was an expense we didn’t need. We were only in our 50s.

    When you do these “Frugal” thingies, you need to take into account that not everyone lives in a city.
