I like getrichslowly and www.thesimpledollar.com 'cause they're not 'just' a mom blog - [nothing against mom blogs, I'm just not one].

What about www.retailmenot.com ? For discount codes for online purchases.

me, 28 & dh, 32.

I also like getrichslowly.org

Also http://pocketmint.net/ and http://www.cindysporch.net/ (especially the Yahoo group/listserv associated with it. Lots of focus on shopping at home and using what you already own, and DOing things with your family instead of buying things)

Thank you all so, so much! I'm going to update the list, post it to my blog and Facebook, AND take it to FPU. Heck, I might even sticky it, LOL!
