Frugality: Antecedents, Consequents and Implications For Consumer Welfare

By analyzing the relationship between frugality and its antecedents and consequences, we assume that consumers with high self-control, lower hedonic orientation, and less susceptibility to interpersonal influence are more frugal, have greater tendency to repair their products, and are more satisfied with their lives. We discuss implications for marketing practice.
