One of my favorite parts of running Inexpensively for the last several years has been the opportunity to get to know fellow frugal bloggers. We have shared deals, guest blogged for one another, met in person at conferences and even dined together. I am pleased to call many of them real friends. I know you’ll love them too—especially for all the money they’ll save you!
Broke As a Spoke: Corrin is hilariously funny, totally open & honest and just plain awesome to know. I first “met” her when I bought her Blissdom ticket in 2010. When she found a sponsor and ended up at the conference anyway, we decided we should meet up for a drink, and I’m so glad I did.
It was actually several months of online chatting before I even realized she had a frugal blog. (It’s just one of her many online adventures—we’re a lot alike there.) On Broke As a Spoke, you’ll find a weekly tally of everywhere Corrin spent her money and frugal advice for the wannabe fashionista. Plus, follow her on Twitter for links to her tips & advice all over the internet!
How to Have It All: I’ve known Renae for quite awhile now—we had the chance to meet and spend time together at last year’s Blissdom. When I first got to know her, she was part of a blogging duo. When that dissolved, she set off on a brand new adventure. At How to Have It All, you will find money saving ideas, cooking tips, craft projects and more as she balances motherhood, working and blogging.
Making Time for Mommy: Alicia writes most of the Giving Inexpensively articles around here—I love her simple ideas for being charitable on a budget. On her own site, she shares tips for homeschooling tots, offers product giveaways for moms & kids and documents her new weight loss journey. She has joined me as one of 10 bloggers for the George Foreman Knock out the Fat Weight Loss Challenge.
Saving for Someday: Sara is not just an online friend. I would call her a personal friend, as well. I first stumbled on Sara at Blissdom last year, in all my 3-martini charm, and discovered we had a a lot in common. Our savings philosophies are spot on (save money on the little things so you can afford the important stuff you really want!), we both have a life list to work through, and we’re both gluten free.
When I learned she was also a frugal blogger, I told her we just had to touch base after the conference! We even went on to room together at BlogHer a few months later. Sara is a fabulous friend to have—and it shines right through everything she writes. She is caring, helpful and so supportive. She even joined the Mamavation Sistahood to support my journey.
If you want someone on Twitter to tell you how awesome you are, she’s the girl to follow!
Shopper Strategy: Denise is a busy, busy lady! In addition to blogging, raising quads (yes, quads!) & an older son, she is the creator of the Coupon Clutch. We first met at BlogHer last year, when I fell in love with her designer coupon totes! We’ve had the chance to get to know one another through Twitter & Skype and spent an awesome few days together at Blissdom earlier this year.
