It’s time for another frugal win of the week (FWOTW) post – quarantine edition! Since everyone is now staying at home and non-essential businesses are closed, I’ve had several friends and coworkers complain that they can’t get their hair cut anywhere. After 3 weeks of quarantine, one friend has resorted to shaving his head!
My wonderful wife has been cutting my hair at home since May 2013 and she just cut my hair today while the kids were napping. The entire process took about 15 minutes. Afterwards, I hopped into the shower to wash away all the leftover prickly bits of hair. There’s just something so refreshing about getting a haircut. In the past, I’ve paid $28 per haircut twice a month! Getting my haircut at home saves time, money, and fuel.
If any readers are quarantined and cut their own hair or have a significant other do it - awesome, keep it up! If you are quarantined and need a haircut, now is the perfect time to start practicing. Even if you mess up, your hair will grow back.
Once you eliminate an expense, it is gone forever. It’s not just about saving an amount for one time or one year, but saving that amount every year for the rest of your life!
