I’m always looking for new ways to save money. Believe it or not, I wasn’t always frugal. Back before my penny pinching days, I used to roam the stores and shop till I dropped. While I still have been known to fill up the cart from time to time, I wouldn’t be the frugalista I am today without the help of the frugal community.
Many of us may start to feel like we’ve tried it all, and we need to find a new way to pinch those pennies. Perhaps you’ve got this whole frugal thing down to a science and you just need some motivation to keep on keeping on. Whatever your reason is for fulfilling your frugal needs, I’m sure you’ll find tons of frugal inspiration and tips on my top favorite frugal living websites.
My Favorite Frugal Living Websites
One of the greatest tools in my couponing tool kit is my deal matching websites. I use Moola Saving Mom for her weekly Harris Teeter Ad Match ups. For those of you who aren’t familiar with what an ad match up is, it’s essentially a database that lists all the items from the weekly ad and matches them with coupons that are available to use. Jessie posts her ad match ups pretty early in the week, so I can use it to make my meal plan for the week.
In addition to getting my weekly ad match ups, I also subscribe to the Hip2Save daily newsletter. Every day they send you an email with the latest deals that she has found, including ad match ups for popular stores such as Target, CVS, Rite Aid, and more! I found many great deals through this newsletter such as 50% off pizza codes for Papa Johns, and even freebie alerts!
In addition to getting daily deals from Hip2Save, I also subscribe to The Krazy Coupon Lady Newsletter as well. They have great weekly match ups for Dollar General and Dollar Tree as well as daily deals. I primarily use this newsletter to find daily deals so I know when to head to the store to score a great deal.
If you own any type of tablet you NEED to subscribe to her newsletter! Every day, including weekends, you will get an email with a list of discounted and free ebooks to download! I’ve found a number of fantastic reads this way and highly recommend this site to any avid readers out there.
I’ve been following Ruth’s blog Living Well Spending Less for well over a year now, and I highly recommend this site to anyone out there looking to save money around their home. Ruth covers a wide range of topics from how to clean your car to how to manage a budget. I always look forward to her homemaking posts as they’ve saved me quite a bit of money around my home.
Have you ever wondered what frugal with style looks like? Look no further than Creative Savings Blog! Kayln’s blog was one of the first frugal living blogs I stumbled upon when I made the transition into a frugal lifestyle, and her posts never disappoint. If you’ve ever found yourself thinking you can’t live the good life on a budget, Kayln will certainly change your mindset.
If you ever wondered what it would be like to retire early or start a side hustle, Michelle’s blog Making Sense of Cents is the perfect place to start. Her blog goes in depth on many money issues ranging from renting versus owning to how to start investing. You never know what money related post you’re going to find on her blog each week, and she has a lot of money expertise to share.
If you are paying off debt, or are just buried in it, then stop by Six Figures Under and read Stephanie’s blog posts! Her and her family were able to pay off six figures worth of debt, and she documented her entire journey right there on her blog. Six Figures Under is packed full of helpful and creative ways to save money so you can put more toward your debt payments.
I have only recently started reading the Frugal Woods blog over the past year, but it’s one I’ve really fell in love with. Frugal Woods documents one family’s dream to move from the city to a homestead of their own in Vermont, and how a simple life change made all their dreams come true. If you need some frugal motivation or inspiration this is the perfect place to get your fix!
I have only recently started following the Little House Living blog, but it’s one I would definitely recommend! Her blog focuses on homestead life, but more specifically on the do it yourself aspect of frugal living. Her blog is jam packed with recipes made from scratch, gardening tips, and even how to can your own harvest! Anyone looking to start making more from scratch could really benefit from her blog. She even has recipes for homemade gummies and homemade soda!
