Today's frugal lifestyle made many people forget what enjoying and living your life to its fullest is all about. Paying for entertainment seems like a waste of money since hedonism is not a base need right?
Hobbies keep us on the move and make us forget about worries and boredom, and we certainly get too much of that nowadays.
Furthermore, hobbies not only cost too little to give up on them, but we can also find a way to earn money from a hobby.
Do you enjoy photography? Why not become a professional photographer?
Do you like stamp-collecting? Why not setup an Ebay store and start a profitable philately business? I hear people are making a killing selling stamps online.
There are many hobby ideas that don't require any financial investment, so living without it thinking it would cost you a lot is a poor excuse.
