wanted–READER’S FRUGAL TIPS AND QUESTIONS {and some Australian blogs}

Wanted - Reader's Frugal tips and QuestionsThere’s a large number of readers here on the blog that I know, from your comments and emails, are frugal experts with a wealth of frugal information that others would benefit from.

So I thought it would be a good idea to have a post a month (or more) showcasing YOUR frugal tips and experiences as well as your blogs or favourite blog posts that you’ve read.

Alternatively, if you have a question, I can also pose that to the Frugal and Thriving community for a variety of responses.

What do you think?

If you have a frugal tip or question, you can leave a comment, email them to melissa@frugalandthriving.com.au or share it on the Frugal and Thriving Facebook page. Ideas could include:

  • Frugal tips
  • DIY tips
  • Simple / green living tips
  • Gardening tips
  • Household tips
  • Photos
  • Repurposing projects
  • Savings tips
  • Recipes
  • Questions

If you write a blog and have a relevant frugal or money saving post that you would like to share, please feel free to email me the post or share it in the comments on this post or later posts in this series, and I’ll add it to a round up.

Speaking of which, here are just a few of my favourite blogs about saving money and frugal / simple living:

Have a blog about frugality? Why not share you blog below (or a blog you read and like). I’ll do a link up in upcoming posts.

Have any frugal tips? Share them in the comments, on Facebook or via email for the next reader contributions post.

    Thank you for including me :-)

    There’s a few new to me blogs on that list (as well as a few of my favs) so I’m looking forward to checking out the ‘new to me’ blogs. Thanks for sharing.

    Hi Frugal and Thriving.

    Love your blog – some great tips here and I’ve got it in my RSS reader account and make sure I read every post!

    I’ve recently started my own blog (based in Oz) on trying to apply the ideas of ‘being frugal’ to my life in order to get a handle on debt while remaining relatively sane. I thought I’d share it here.


    Only new, but I’m hoping to blog my way towards financial security!

    Hi Melissa,

    I’ve been reading through your blog and really enjoying it! I have my own baby blog, wealthywinters.com, with just a smattering of posts at the moment. Would love to be featured on your blog or even guest post if you like my work!
