abstract representation of money and frugality

Frugal people are the ones that find the cheapest ways to do things. Their motto is often “why spend money when you don’t have to.” We all have one friend that saves their money instead of spending it or the one that would rather pack lunches instead of wasting money on food at an amusement park.

The Least to Most Frugal Zodiac Signs

12. Leo ♌ (July 23 – August 22) 

Leo symbol

It’s no surprise that Leo is the least frugal of the zodiac signs. Leo loves to show off and be the center of attention. From showing off their hot bodies to posting pictures of their lavish lifestyle, Leos are the definition of luxury. They enjoy showing off their money to anyone that they can, and they prefer to only have the finest things in life. This can lead to Leo having a lot of material things as well as a lot of debt because he can be financially irresponsible.

11. Sagittarius ♐ (November 22 – December 21)

This wild child is known for living for the moment. A true adventurer at heart, Sagittarius doesn’t always have the time or patience for budgeting. This zodiac sign would much rather splurge on having fun and trying new things than save money in the bank. They believe that you should enjoy life while you can, and they don’t mind spending money on things others would find unnecessary to do it.

10. Pisces ♓ (February 19 – March 20)

Pisces symbol

Pisces is not frugal, but they don’t splurge money that they don’t have either. Instead, Pisces can be seen making sure that they have a good nest egg first. Then, they will spend money they have on whatever they enjoy, whether it’s video games or nice cologne. You can trust that if Pisces has an expensive habit, they will not hold back when it comes time to buy something for it.

9. Libra ♎ (September 23 – October 22)

Libra is able to save money, but only for things that this zodiac sign deems important, such as paying off student loans or a family vacation. Aside from that, don’t expect this zodiac sign to be overly frugal. They would much rather see their friends and family members smile as they spend money on them or enjoy splurging on a cool new DIY project.

8. Aquarius ♒ (January 20 – February 18)

Aquarius symbol

Aquarius tends to go back and forth between being frugal to save and splurging. When this sign has an important financial goal to achieve, they will save as much as they can. It can quickly make Aquarius appear to be a very frugal sign.

Once that goal is reached, however, being frugal is over. Then, Aquarius will want to celebrate by spending money on unnecessary things or having some fun. This will give you the impression that Aquarius is the least frugal zodiac sign. It’s good that Aquarius has a nice balance!

7. Aries ♈ (March 21 – April 19)

Aries is not necessarily frugal, but they do tend to put thought into how and when they spend their money. The last thing that Aries wants is to be broke. Because of that, this zodiac sign carefully plans around when they will spend money. For example, if there is a birthday coming up, Aries will make sure to include the amount they are going to spend in their budget. They even budget when they want to splurge on something expensive. Instead of being frugal, Aries aims to be financially responsible.

6. Cancer ♋ (June 21 – July 22)

Cancer symbol

Cancer is more thoughtful about spending money than Aries. Expect this sign to spend a long time deciding whether a particular purchase is a good idea. It makes going shopping with them a bit tedious.

There are times that a frugal side will come out in Cancer as well. They simply believe that you shouldn’t always spend money on things that you don’t need.

5. Gemini ♊ (May 21 – June 20)

Gemini prefers to be smart about spending money. A young Gemini will accidentally overspend a lot, and then try to make up for it by being frugal later. Mature Geminis learn to budget so that they can enjoy both saving and spending money. As with everything, you tend to get both sides of the coin with Gemini.

4. Scorpio ♏ (October 23 – November 21)

Scorpio symbol

Scorpio doesn’t like to spend money. This zodiac sign will eat at home over ordering pizza to avoid spending extra money and don’t even think about asking them if they want to splurge on a shopping spree. Instead, they would much rather save every penny that they possibly can.

3. Capricorn ♑ (December 22 – January 19)

Capricorn is the most reserved of the zodiac signs, and they pride themselves on always being in control. You will see this in their emotions as well as in their finances. They firmly believe that you should never show off, and will avoid spending money in front of other people. This zodiac sign also doesn’t believe in lavish purchases without a justifiable reason, such as an anniversary.

2. Virgo ♍ (August 23 – September 22)

virgo symbol

It’s no surprise that nit-picky Virgo is one of the most frugal zodiac signs. This hard worker is frugal because they want to know where every penny goes. The entire bank account has to be perfectly budgeted. If Virgo can’t seem to justify a purchase, they often don’t make it. Virgo is one of the hardest-working signs of the zodiac, and they take their money very seriously because of it.

1. Taurus ♉ (April 20 – May 20)

Taurus symbol

Taurus is such a serious saver that most people consider this zodiac sign to be cheap. They aren’t the type to volunteer to pay for anything, and they hate owing anyone money. Much like Virgo, this sign is meticulous about budgeting and knowing where every penny goes. You’ll also notice that they tend to weigh the pros and cons of every purchase that they make, and often wind up deciding not to purchase something so that they can save their money instead.

Zodiac & Being Financial Responsible

Frugal zodiac signs might seem a bit finicky about their money, but you can always trust that they have enough in their savings account for an emergency. However, these signs could learn to live a little from the least frugal signs of the zodiac, just as big spenders could learn a few habits from their frugal friends.
