Over the course of this month, some of you have asked where I get my frugal inspiration.
While nothing can replace a frugal friend in the flesh, my fellow frugal bloggers are often a close second.
Over the years, I've gotten some of my best ideas from frugal blogs.

For a time, I became so hooked on reading frugal blogs, I had little time left to actually be frugal.
That's when I started trimming my list.
I now limit myself to just a handful of blogs that I check daily and another handful I check in on periodically.

1. Deal blogs that provide info on the latest grocery and internet deals as well as up-to-date coupon info.
2. Idea/tip blogs that offer basic how-to information on saving money.
3. Day-in-the-life blogs that illustrate how families live frugally.
