It's wonderful to be surrounded by talented friends and family. My cousin, Kristen, has started a blog devoted to frugality and good stewardship called Joyfully Thriving. She highlights free samples, rewards programs, and other staples of thrifty living. Kristen and my husband often regaled each other with savings at the grocery store. Favorite stories include the weeks when Kristen would buy all her groceries with a $20. She is truly a thrifty role model.
Check her out. It will be worthwhile.
