Festival of Frugality #215

I’m happy to host the Festival of Frugality this week. Back when we graduated from college, Jason and I were $100,000 in debt, and personal finance bloggers were a great source of advice and inspiration. Nine years later, we’ve paid off all our debt (yay!), but a lot of their frugal tips can be applicable to our conservation goals, as well.

There were a lot of submissions this week, so I’ve broken them into categories. I obviously don’t agree with the content of all of them, but here are four of my favorites:

Using Less

Smart Shopping

Budgeting

Retirement

Credit

Computers

Vacations

Valentine’s Day

Goals

Recurring Expenses

Phew—that’s a lot of info! Thanks to the Ultimate Money Blog for hosting last week, and check out the festival home page for more info on how to submit or host.
