My Goals with this Blog...

Are to document my experiences with various income streams and programs in my quest to becoming a full time freelancer working from home. I plan to list my current 'eggs' and to post the things that have and haven't worked for me.

The Frugal Renter

Posted by tehblogging trolless | 11:50 PM

Next month will be a year in which I have official been on my own with my partner in crime. Over that year, we have dropped many unhealthy and downright expensive habits from our lives. Namely overpaying on the things we need, cutting down and or dropping the things we didn’t and even changing our diet entirely. Many things like name brand milk got dropped to store brand.

We became – gasp! – frugal. Not scrapping by on scraps but comfortable and frugal. This extended even to things we didn’t think could be frugal like auto insurance. Just because you see places on TV doesn’t mean they are the only insurers in town. Mind you we don’t have as awesome a diversity as an online friend in PA. They get their insurance from an online place that is legitimate and saves them way more than the big boys.

But seeing how that worked out for them, we have been hunting for an equivalent in our state. Mind if we do, I’ll spill out the juicy details. Frugal people should help out each other, no matter the state!
