To the original question: Big time!
Beekeeping is the first hobby I have taken up that is not paying for itself :) Otherwise, I do things that I make enough money off of to cover the costs and then some (basket weaving, soap making, meat and egg chickens, veggies, etc.)
We buy almost all our clothes at second hand stores. And, they look great!
Our car is 14 years old. We will drive it until it becomes too costly to repair.
We grow and put up a LOT of our own food. We have our own chickens for eggs and meat, same with turkeys. Husband hunts. We barter a fair amount for grains, beef and dairy. This saves us a lot of money.
If it can be made from scratch (can't it all?), I usually do, including buttermilk, butter, yogurt, etc. If it can be grown or foraged, we usually do. Then freeze, dry or can it. Make own soap, shampoo, laundry detergent, dishwasher detergent.
We rarely eat out. Most of our entertainment is free. Sometimes we spend on things as a treat for the kids, but we have the most fun doing things that don't cost money (taking walks, biking, swimming, doing our hobbies, playing games).
We just don't spend much on "stuff." Probably because I'm such a neat freak and cannot stand clutter.
So, yes, I feel pretty frugal. But it's all fun, saves the earth some wastefulness and saves us a load of money.
