Well hey there! You must be new around here! You’ve come to the right page, my friend. I’ve put together 25 blogs that are perfect for Picky Pinchers newcomers. They explain more about our mindset and approach to money (with plenty of hilarious hi-jinks sprinkled in there, of course).

Before you read, I recommend snagging a copy of our 30-Day Frugal Cleanse. It’s totally free and gives you one actionable thing to do every day for a month. It’s like bootcamp for your finances, but without the yelling. 🙂 Just sign up for our email list (that’s free too, of course) and I’ll email you your copy of the 30-Day Frugal Cleanse. Happy reading!
