Fantastic New Blog About Being Frugal

Good morning! I wanted to shine a spotlight on a blog that was recently started by a Canadian friend and mentor. I first found his articles on the Homestead.org website and they really inspired me to think about ways that I could reduce the costs around my home. I have shared his articles with many people over the past year or so and find that I gain new insight and a renewed sense of frugality every time that I read them. He is light years ahead of me, utilizing both solar and wind power. I always get new projects to add to the To-Do list, which grows longer by the day. For those of you who think that you will never be able to afford a comfortable retirement, I offer up this article by Jan R. Cooke:

The Economics of Being a Cheap-O

His new blog is Cheap-O Economics

I hope that he inspires you as much as he inspires me!

Yes, he has some good ideas and is a man after my own heart. Thank you for introducing me to his blog.

You are so welcome! I read his articles whenever I need a bit of inspiration to stay the course and work toward my goals. I still need to do something that will get me a bit closer to solar power before winter hits. (That is one of the To Do items that his writing inspires me to put into action). I still have a few weeks left before it gets REALLY COLD!
