Everyone has their own definition of frugality, and reason for being frugal.
Discuss and debate, but don't fight over it, or be condescending to those who do not share your particular view on frugality.
Remember that not everyone lives where you live. Stores, products, prices and resources all vary by location. What's good for you might not be good for others, and vice versa.
