I have a confession. In my personal life, I have the "cheap" gene.
Cheap is bad. Cheap leads you to avoid issues, take shortcuts and incur unnecessary stress.
Frugal is good. Frugal ensures you get value for that which you realize is a realistic and healthy use of your funds.
I sometimes have anxiety when buying non-essentials. This can even
happen when buying things that are required, but my "cheap" gene is
talking me out of them. How do I personally address this?
