I’m pretty sure that most of us need to find ways to pinch those pennies for one reason or another. We either need ideas we’ve never tried before, we need to know that someone else is in the same boat, or we just need some motivation to keep it going. Maybe you’re just new to frugal living and don’t know where to start. (Here’s how to make a very simple budget) Whatever your reason is, I’m sure you’ll find lots of great frugal living tips and inspiration at my top 10 favorite frugal living websites/blogs (besides my own frugal homemaking blog 🙂 ), they are in no particular order.
Top Frugal Living Websites

2. The Prudent Homemaker – Brandy covers how to eat for less and build up your pantry plus lots of great recipes, gardening and frugal living advice.
