It’s National Creative Frugality Week

By  | 

ItI'm a little late out of the gate on this one, but better late then never. We are in the midst of the 8th annual National Creative Frugality Week, being held this year from January 22nd to 28th. This is an event founded by Nancy Twigg of the CountingtheCost.com web site.

Intended to occur one month after the Christmas holiday, this week is for those of us who overspent – and those who didn’t – to have some fun as we learn some new ways to be resourceful and frugal.

Nancy has got a great site full of lots of frugal resources. Among her suggestions for jumpstarting your frugality after an expensive holiday season…

  • Record everything you spend – Every penny…only then will you realize where it all goes, which is a good thing.
  • Cut down on extras – Do you really need that cappuccino from the coffee shop every morning?
  • Look for ways to make extra money – How about an early spring cleaning? Declutter your house and have a yard sale or sell it all eBay.
  • Enjoy free fun – Raid the library, go for a walk instead of the mall, spend an evening with the family and your favorite board games.

Here's the webpage for the National Creative Frugality Week.
