Do you make frugality a habit?

Posted at 8:10 AM on December 28, 2009 by Julia Schrenkler

Money. Some people would rather discuss religion, politics, sex, or death before talking about money. Others obsess over it. The medium of exchange is front and center today, and I'm hoping for a social exchange about the topic.

On Midmorning today:

Chief Economics Correspondent Chris Farrell says there's at least one silver lining to The Great Recession. It accelerated a trend that he calls the new frugality. Monday on Midmorning, Chris Farrell will join Kerri Miller to talk about the new frugality, and why it's a good thing.

Today's Question:

Which recession habits will stay with you after the economy improves?

I have to wonder, is frugality a habit or a mindset? What do our financial choices really say about our spending and saving? How do you determine if you are frugal? Join our online discussion to continue the conversation.
