I was thinking the other day about the many different terms there are for being frugal. I was trying to distinguish between the nice ones and the not so nice ones. Here’s the list I came up with:

Nice

-Frugal
-Thrifty
-Conscientious
-Economical
-Preserving
-Prudent
-Bargain Shopper
-Frugalite

Not so nice

-Cheapskate
-Tightwad
-Stingy
-Tight
-Cheap
-Miser
-Money grubber
-Scrooge
-Penny-pincher

What are some frugal terms that I may have missed? Have you been called any of these?
