It's frugal in a lot of ways. First, it doesn't cost much to walk. Certainly a lot less than buying gas, insurance, maintenance and tags for a car. Secondly, it lowers your doctor bills. Walking is healthy for anyone who can walk. It will lower blood pressure, lower cholesterol levels, increase muscle strength and lung capacity and help digestion, to mention a few things. Most of us live in places where we can walk to something. To stores or to work or to the park. Even if you can't walk there, walk around a few blocks. You'll be money and health ahead.
