You don’t have to be poor to be frugal. There are many reasons a family can decide to be frugal. You may want to save money for your kids college, or retire early, or you may be trying to help the environment by not wasting resources.
Whatever your reason, we want to try to give you the information, and tips you need to save money, get great deals, and recycle used items. Don’t consider the names of tightwad, penny-pincher or cheapskate as derogatory, but as a badge of success.
1 not wasteful; not spending freely or unnecessarily; thrifty; economical
2 not costly or luxurious; inexpensive or meager [a frugal meal]
One program I highly recommend is MyPoints
This is how it works: You sign up, and they email you advertisements. You get points for reading the ads, and then you can redeem your points for gift certificates to different merchants such as Staples, Outback, Amazon, and many other well known stores. So far I’ve redeemed my points for a $50 certificate to Amazon, and a $50 certificate to Home Depot. Not bad for just reading email.
