Weekly Roundup: Support Our Sponsors Edition

I’ll be including a new feature in the weekly roundups called “Support Our Sponsors.” Just a short blurb about our current banner advertisers, whose financial support helps pay my expenses here at Frugal Dad and keep things running.

Every now and then I get an email from a reader asking how they can support Frugal Dad. I don’t currently sell any material (working on creating a couple products – more on that soon), and I don’t lock down content to paying subscribers, so the best way you can help is by supporting those who support me.
