The BF and I were lucky in that the other night we had some friends invite us over for dinner. This saves us money and gives us a chance to socialize, but it's hard for me to put my pride aside and let someone else offer me something.
Living frugally really means that you have to put aside some pride. At some point in the future, I have every intention of taking these friends out for dinner or buying the makings for a meal or even inviting them over. But right now, we aren't in a position where we can. Sometimes when you don't have money, you really do have allow others to help you out and offer their kindness.
Just a quick thought on the matter.
