Living Frugally

Jeff Moore presents 25 Blogs with the Best Tips for Shopping Back to School Deals posted at Babysitting Jobs, saying, "You can often save by shopping completely out of season. Oftentimes, shopping doesn’t even involve leaving your home, as online discounts are plentiful and recycling what you already have is an option, too."

David presents Are Brooks Brothers Shirts Worth it? posted at Financial Nerd, saying, "Describing Analysis that factored into purchasing Brooks Brothers shirts."

Dakota1301 presents What Does Thrifty Mean? posted at NiftyThrifter, saying, "Hi, I wrote this blog so that people can get an idea of what frugality and thrifty are. Hope you enjoy!"


Jacob @ My Personal Finance Journey presents Extreme Retirement Saving - Is it For You? posted at My Personal Finance Journey, saying, "This post explores what is "extreme retirement saving" and whether or not the strategy is right for you."


Daniel presents My Letter To The IRS Disputing Their Insufficient Funds Charge posted at Sweating The Big Stuff, saying, "The IRS took $210 out of my refund. Here is my response requesting them to review and reconsider."
