Sunday share: Frugal living

Many of us are now looking for tips on how to live a more frugal lifestyle. With some of us it's a necessary change, brought on by a change in circumstances. With others it's by choice, and brought on by our own wish to save money and/or use less of our planet's resources. Whichever of these catagories you fall in to, here are a few web sites where you can pick up tips on how to live that frugal lifestyle:

Frugal living in the UK
Frugal Families
All Things Frugal
Living On A Dime
Frugal Mom

You may also be interested in checking out a new blog I've recently stumbled across. It's called "It's Frugal Being Green" and is full of all sorts of useful tips, lists of titles of books you may find useful and informative, and links to various other blogs and web sites you may find useful and interesting.

If you have any other links and/or tips to add, feel free to add them in the comments section of this post.

CelticSpirit recommends this site: The Dollar Stretcher

Thanks for the tips, Tori. Those are some interesting sites. I liked Frugal Mom's - it had a little bit of everything.

Nice share.

Thanks for the hubby is self-employed, and while he's still working, doesn't have as many clients in this "iffy" economy as he once did. Living a more frugal lifestyle is always a good thing! Today I'm having a quiet Mother's Day. I'm celebrating by cleaning the screen porch, trimming plants that are seriously about to turn into mammoth tangles of growth because of recent heavy rains, and, of course, hosting my weekly Silly Sunday Sweepstakes. Please stop by, if you have a chance!

Thanks for the list of frugal sites Tori.
One frugal site that I really love is the Dollar Stretcher. The site is at I've been reading it for about 6 or 7 years. There's an index at the top where they have a list of all articles that have been on that site.

I can see Kero looking over here all worried that you'll cut a corner or two with the doggie treats and chews...

Thanks for the links - I'm off to give them a read!

Hope you find them useful.

Don't worry, I wont let Kero be without his treats (although, don't tell him, but I'm trying him on a new brand of dog food that's a bit cheaper.... Shhhh). ;)
