Frugal Living Articles

This frugal living articles page is all about what is happening in the world concerning being frugal and leading a less wasteful life.

I will add frugal news stories from around the world to give an insight into how others are trying to be more frugal and save money.

The articles will be varied and hopefully of interest to you all and also may help you to implement a few new frugal strategies into your own daily lives.

Of course if you come across a great frugal news story please feel free to add it here, the more the merrier.

Information is king as we know and by spreading and informing others we can hope to help just a little bit and perhaps stop someone falling into debt.
