This blog is currently under construction. But don't worry: it's going to be (and look) AWESOME! (I've even commissioned an artist. Granted, I am married to him, but still...). My new blog is going to be all about how to make frugality a reality in your life - without feeling deprived. And it's not just another one of those bargain shopping blogs (those are great and all, don't get me wrong), but more of an uplifting recipe, home management, parenting, finance -everything!- source.
I did a Google image search for "parsimonious" and some of the first images that resulted were various depictions of Ebenezer Scrooge. I realize that technically the word "parsimony" means extreme frugality, to the point of stinginess. I'm no Scrooge and I won't be nearly so extreme. I believe there are different ways and levels when it comes to being frugal. It's all about priorities and goals. More on that later. So, why choose the word 'parsimonious', especially with its miserly connotation? I guess I'm just a sucker for alliteration.
Check back soon - and spread the word!
