Definition of frugalista

A person who keeps up with current fashion trends without spending large amounts of money, either by shopping at second-hand stores, vintage shops, eBay, discount online retailers or other resources such as Gum tree, Freecycle or Craigslist.

True frugalistas may extend this ethos to other areas of their life by keeping their entertainment, food and living costs to a minimum.  This can be achieved by growing their own produce, sewing their own clothing, eating out rarely and seeking out entertainment that is free or not going out at all.
