Frugality in the Making

Frugality in the Making is a blog all about saving money. The author is really an expert at using coupons and keeping all of her discounts and coupon related items organized. After all, clipping coupons is worthless if you can’t find them when you need them. There are also plenty of articles on other sorts of discounts, special offers and ways to save money.

Frugality in the Making – Why You Should Go

This is a great site for anyone who wants to save money. You’ll find lots of links to discounts, and articles to help you make the most of your discounts. I love the link to a place where you can buy coupons from the Sunday papers. It allows you to buy the coupons you need for about three cents each, rather than paying for the Sunday paper and getting all those coupons you won’t use.

Summing Up Frugality in the Making

Great website for anyone looking for ways to save money on things you buy anyway. There are also lots of great articles about making the most of those coupons, such as practical ways to organize them.

Tiny House Blog

It may seem like the movement in real estate in the modern age is always bigger is better, but not so for a definite segment of the world’s population. Many are finding out that small, or tiny, really is better.

Tiny House Blog – Why You Should Go

Author Kent Griswold describes it best:

“The goal of the tiny house blog is to discover the different options available for a person looking to down size into a tiny house or cabin. I will be looking at different type of construction, from logs, to yurts to modern and the unusual. I will also do book reviews, look at alternate energy for heat and electricity.
I want to encourage feedback and ideas to make this an informative blog. Stories of people who are living this dream. Pictures of tiny houses and cabins, etc.”

This is a highly interesting blog that is in many ways freeing as you begin to explore the options for what is largely an alternative lifestyle, but one that is based so firmly in efficiency and down to earth, reasonable living. In many ways, the tiny house movement and hence the Tiny House blog just make sense—even more so now with the addition of this blog and its many resources for homeowners interested in freeing themselves by living literally in less.

Summing Up Tiny House Blog

The Tiny House blog is a top resource for those looking toward alternative means of living and living out their dreams in their own unique ways.
