So what’s a frugalista? It’s a term I recently picked up from my good friend Nicole Reed at Some Good Reedin’.
The definition sounds something like this: “A woman who enjoys getting a good deal, finding a bargain, and generally kicking butt at stretching her hard-earned dollar.” I’m pretty sure the definition hasn’t made it into Webster’s yet.
I would probably get kicked out of the frugal woman blogosphere for trying to call myself a frugalista right now. I’m not adept at couponing or shopping on Black Friday. I don’t yet calculate how to make three-course family dinners for $5 or less.
However, I did recently stumble upon MoneySavingMom.com. And MyFrugalAdventures.com. Definitely some good reedin’. There’s plenty of help and ideas out there for giving yourself a frugalista makeover!
