Festival of Frugality – Tax Day Edition is Up

The 121st edition of the Festival of Frugality is up and running over at Rather Be Shopping.  Frugal Dad’s “Ultimate Frugal Weekend” was fortunate enough to be designated an editor’s choice, along with eleven other outstanding articles.

My personal favorite from the festival was submitted by Catherine at Frugal Homemaker Plus.  Catherine eloquently describes the difference between luck and hard work, and emphasizes hard work is what makes people successful over the long term.  This is an excellent read – if you skip the other eighty-something articles, don’t miss this one!

Another favorite from this edition of the Festival of Frugality was submitted by “Fabulously Broke” of Fabulously Broke in the City.  Her article, The True Cost of Owning and Watching a TV is one of the most thorough posts I’ve ever read on the dangers of television watching (financially).  As you all know, I’m not much of a television watcher, so this one was right up my alley!


  1. Thanks for the mention of the Festival, appreciate it. I have been a lurker on your blog for awhile and gotta say that you have one of the best blogs going right now, I really enjoy it. Consistently good on a daily basis, very hard to pull off but you do it.
