For those of us trying to live frugally, on less than we make, it is sometimes difficult to find like minded friends. You may be watching your friends and family make bad money decisions while they mock your frugality. Even if you don’t have the support of a frugal community where you live, you can still find one.
As everyone knows by know, we subscribe to the Dave Ramsey school of thought financially. We are members of the My Total Money Makeover online community, and we find a ton of great advice on the site and on the forums there. There are thousands of folks who are trying to reach the same financial goals that we are, and they are all sharing their ideas about how to make it work. There are conversations about how to live on less than you make, how to save on daily expenses, and advice from those who have been there. The online community has been a huge help to us during our financial journey over the past year.
My newest frugal community is on Blog Frog. The Frugal Living community is very active, and a great place to seek advice. Right now there are conversations going on about frugal date nights, freeganism, couponing, marriage and money, and dozens of other topics. They also give away stuff all the time, and are affliated with EBates. I have won a $25 Target giftcard, $25 Sephora giftcard, and $25 ITunes giftcard on the community forum. It has been so fun to win! Right now they are giving away a IPad. Check it out.
So the question is: Where do you find frugal community or advice?
Thanks for the heads up. I am going to go check out blog frog.
I am following you from Boost my blog Friday. I would appreciate it if you could stop over and follow me back.
I am giving a Halloween Apron away to one of my followers 10/5
None! *sigh* I’ve checked out some forums, but things are so different here in Mexico that many pieces of advice simply do not apply!! (We don’t even have grocery store coupons here!)
I have gotten a few gems from Google searches on saving, though 🙂
Gringa – I wonder if there is an expat frugal living blog out there somewhere. Surely one exists somewhere…
