I read The Simple Dollar and Get Rich Slowly almost every day. I like their chatty style and there is very good and inspiring information. That said, I have reading frugal stuff for so long, I think I know just about everything now!. And, for the record, it definitely has paid off as I even made it through a divorce with no debt and very little financial stress <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy"> Reading the blogs is so helpful to keep focus over the long haul. You don't feel so alone, you know?

One of my biggest "no's" when we are on a budget (um, all the time), is fancy dinners out. It's just not in the budget frequently at all. So, I have a couple of local, farm-to-table, local, in season, type places bookmarked. I follow their prix fixe meals every week (they change weekly), and I frequently copy those meals to give me a little taste of fine dining at home. It's fun, it's inspiring, and it makes me happy. So, frugal and not, at the same time. My favorite is <a href="http://fiveandten.com/" target="_blank">http://fiveandten.com/</a><br><br>
And, I love this one because she has a great sense of fashion style on a yard sale/thrift store budget. <a href="http://beautyandbedlam.com/" target="_blank">http://beautyandbedlam.com/</a>

I like this. She is definately a black belt. She does everything, even very small things, to save anything. I also like that she is from a culture different from my own and I am inspired by her cooking.
