We're not cheap. We're frugal.

Listen, we don't claim to be financial experts. We have our ups and downs like any normal person, but for the most part, we are fairly thrifty. We cut coupons. We shop Craigslist. We watch the sales. We never buy anything without reading consumer reviews and searching the Internet for the best price. We aren't perfect , but we have found some useful tools and information that we'd like to share with you.
