Joining the Frugal Fanny Fanclub

Frugal Fanny saves about 20 percent of her income a month and lives very well, with a frugal twist. Her husband is a stay-at-home dad. She was recently featured at MSN by columnist MP Dunleavey.

Dunleavey has put together a helpful and engaging profile about Fanny's Six Tips. My paraphrase, with a link below:

1) Shun debt as much as possible (nix: credit cards, equity loans, etc,)

2) Remember the real bottom line: use money to enhance your life.

3) Forget deprivation (my personal favorite)

4) Avoid money traps: malls, food courts

5) Think twice about bulk purchases

6) Don’t try to keep pace with your neighbors (frugal, spendthrift or otherwise).

Here’s a link to the full text about Frugal Fanny
