Welcome to The Frugal Pig!
You have arrived at the frugal living site for the BEST of us!
We're frugal, but that doesn't mean we're interested in wallowing in any muck. We're enthusiastic travelers, diehard foodies, sophisticated shoppers, educated investors, responsible stewards of our environment, tech geeks, and so much more. To us, frugality simply means making sensible choices and sometimes, learning how to access resources that many people thought were out of reach.
While we discuss frugal living, we explore the smart, sustainable, and sometimes secret ways to make our money work harder. Sometimes, you can save money with smart buying choices; however, very often, the right answer is to earn more money from your hard work and savings. Also, the cheapskate living choice isn't always the frugal one.
The Frugal Pig Mission: We want our resources to provide us with more security and even more fun! At the same time, we're interested in preserving the environment, enhancing our communities, and giving back. We want to work together with the frugal community to increase financial security, explore new concepts and places, enjoy quality, and possess the most priceless things in life, like satisfaction and adventure.
Note: Please don't consider anything on Frugal Pig as investment advice. For the legal stuff, please see our Privacy Page.
