Cheap v. Frugal

Is there a difference between being cheap and being frugal?

My coworker and I were having this conversation and he personally feels that being called frugal is the same as being called cheap. I, on the other hand, tend to disagree as I feel cheap is a derogatory word and fugal is describing your ability to stretch money. Thoughts?


  1. totally different, in my opinion. Cheap is derogatory, whereas I see being called frugal as a implies that you are wise about your money~
