  1. I too use a lot of these great sites.

    Frugality is a way for a bond man to become free again! Everyone should pursue it, regardless of their financial state. Living frugally has been such a blessing to my wife & I.

    Frugal Dad strikes again with this great list!

  2. @Neal: Kind of you to say, but I think of fellow bloggers less as competitors and more as colleagues. So I don’t mind spreading the love (and traffic) as often as possible. That’s a unique thing about blogging, because few other businesses would agree with that approach. In fact, there are probably plenty of blogs that disagree as well.

  3. Thanks for the link. I am curious to see if the frugal habits will hold or if they are more of a fad for most households. Hopefully, environmental concerns will keep many people on the frugal and sustainable track.

  4. Was looking to see if any Canadian bloggers made the list, so far I don’t see any.

    Maybe I will have to do a list for us North of the Border.

  5. I don’t want to speak for Miranda because this was her list, but I will say that there are hundreds of blogs out there. The risk with putting together such a list is that you may inevitably leave off deserving blogs.

    Perhaps I’ll make this an ongoing series of (Top X Blogs) posts on various subjects so I can work in all my favorites as well.

  6. Great list – I’m sure I’ll find a few new resources here (and saw a couple that have moved and fallen off my blog reader list somehow, including Suddenly Frugal, who commented above).

    My blog, Cheap Like Me, fits the bill, too — at least I’ve heard from readers that I’ve saved them some money while helping them make life a little bit better.

    Can’t wait to check out the ones that are new to me.

  7. Frugal Dad,

    I do realize that you feel this way. You’ve been extremely kind and generous with me. I just really appreciate it and this is just another example of you bein’ da man!

  8. Awesome list. I’ve already been following many of these sites but it looks like I’ve missed out on a few that I need to add to my RSS. Thanks!

  9. Thanks for the resource. You have a nice blog here, Frugal Dad. As a fellow Amy follower and Nicheblogger member, I was happy to stumble across your blog. My blog is coming along, but has a long way to go to be on a list like this. If you have time to venture over to my URL, I’d love to have some feedback from some of the experts here. 🙂

  10. I wanted to share a new website for all of my frugal friends out there. When we shop this holiday season, this launch pad has over 400 stores that offer discounts and rebates. The big ones are one there: Gap, Justice, Walmart, Target, etc.. Check it out!

    The site is free to join and shop from your own site! You may have to copy and paste into your address bar. Take a look at the stores and click on what is blastoff!

    Happy Shopping!


  11. Great list. Saving money should be the #1 priority on the Internet today. I use all the coupon sites to do my shopping.

  15. Really wonderful list of sites. I like them very much! I love shopping and like to shop with free online coupons.

  16. With over 1,500 page views per day it seems to me possibly you missed some folks in your list and have some that are not ranked all that high.
    GlossyMoney is a 60 year old couple who have been at the frugal thing longer than most all of these sites starting out on Front Page of all things.
    You might want to check it out.

  17. Thanks so much for including Make it from Scratch. What an honor to be included with such wonderful blogs!

  18. Do you think you cant save money?
