Green homes in Maine, we lived pretty efficiently long before the frugal lifestyle got a color name applied to it.
Mainers make an art of being frugal not cheap. Growing up on a Maine farm, we were told to be careful with our resources. Shutting lights off, using the southern exposure for illumination and passive solar gain in heating.
Root cellars for canning and preserve storage use to draw from for tasty home made foot supplies over the winter months. Using large gardens to grow what you eat the rest of the three seasons too.
Not heating a space larger than you need and keenly aware of being highly efficient. Anything but wasteful or capricious. We use those open and glass porches, not just doodads for show.
