Author of The Blackout Book and the online course Bloom Where You’re Planted
The needs of readers have been changing lately. COVID has caused economic difficulties throughout the country (and honestly, the world.) People are losing their jobs, taking pay cuts, and prices are going up. As preppers, we have been watchful and noted these things were coming for quite some time…but once it hit, it became a whole lot more real.
Even if you’ve been living frugally for years, it may be time to tighten that belt even more. At the same time, I want to keep this website focused on what it’s always been about: preparing for emergencies and hard times, keeping abreast of the events that affect us, and being more self-reliant.
So I’ve started a sister site that will hopefully appeal to folks who are preppers as well as those who aren’t interested in becoming part of the preparedness world. I’d like to introduce The Frugalite. If you’ve noticed I’ve been a bit quieter lately, this is why. I’ve been hard at work with my development team to bring this site to life.
What’s The Frugalite all about?
With this website, I wanted to take away the preconceived notions that frugality has to be boring, unpleasant, and a life of deprivation. I want to show people the amazing things you can accomplish when you focus your money on the things that are the most important to you and cut out the fluff. I also want to help if you’re dealing with a time in your life where you’re flat broke – where you can’t pay your bills and you’re wondering how to feed your family.
You can live a wonderful, full life when you don’t try to keep up with the Joneses. Frugality has given me freedom and rewards I never could have achieved while spending the way most folks do.
Let me know what you think!
This is NOT a prepping website but I think the two disciplines of preparedness and frugality go hand in hand. I hope that at some point I can introduce some preparedness concepts there and bring new folks to the world of preparedness.
Please check out The Frugalite and let me know what you think!
