I don't talk much about frugality on this site. I don't talk about it much in my daily life, either. But it's there, in the background, as a sort of underlying theme to all this cool reuse of junk and making your home work for you.
There are a lot of sites out there that have saving money at the forefront. And, I hate to bring this up, but they can be a bit grim, many of them. And I know that I shouldn't hold that against them, since they don't actually advertise themselves as fun and frugal, but I so don't like grim.
So I was really pleased to find a few sites this week, packed with helpful money-saving tips and a general philosophy of better living through frugality, that are also well-designed, well-written and joyful.
The Frugal Girl started posting about a year ago. She's a mother of four and her blog is "all about the practical, day-to-day ins and outs of frugal living"
Katy Wolk-Stanley writes the Non-Consumer Advocate to "help people learn to live on less, and to do so in a way that lessens their environmental impact." She freely admits her imperfections and has a great sense of humour.
Get Rich Slowly is a huge site that's been around since spring of 2006. Very well-written, the title says it all.
As always, if you have any recommendations, please let me know!
And have yourselves a lovely lazy Sunday!
