The Blog Zone of the Frugal Café… where it’s chic to be cheap.I hate waste. Always have.
Long before this recession hit, I’d been passionate and committed to sharing ideas about how to live better on less money, how to cutback on expenses without too much pain. How to recycle and reuse better.
Cafés in old Europe and early America were gathering places for the sharing of ideas and discussion of contemporary and political issues, away from the scrutiny of the government or government watchdogs/spies. And, drinking hot beverages while doing so, of course.
Social/political commentary is included in the blog about our government’s lack of frugality, the reckless waste of taxpayers’ money, and anything else in the news that dovetails with our philosophy. Conservative values rule here. I don’t care if it is a Democrat, Independent, or Republican — I’ll criticize any elected leader if he or she is a poor steward of our nation’s economy, freedoms, and free market principles. Most liberal websites won’t criticize Democrat politicians… don’t expect Republicans to get a free pass here.
Consider this a sanctuary for conservative discussions and exposing government actions that don’t adhere to the principles of our founding fathers and our US Constitution. While dissenting/diverse ideas are permitted, the content and tone will determine whether or not they will be approved for post. Because of the onslaught of vile and vulgar comment posts about Sarah Palin and her family, I’ve decided NONE will be accepted. It was tedious to read through all of them, just to find one or two tiny morsels that weren’t foul or hate-filled propaganda garbage. So, the new rule is if you don’t have something constructive to say about former Gov. Palin, don’t bother. I’m a huge supporter of hers, as are most of the blog’s readers. There are many anti-Palin blog sites out there… post there.
The main website, Frugal-Cafe.com, has articles on how families can save money, chefs’ cooking secrets, how to be more thrifty, how to cut back or do without, get more “bang for your buck,” DIY ideas for the home and other areas of your life. Famous folks who are making a difference and have a thrift-mindedness about them are showcased (likewise, those who embrace conspicuous consumption are highlighted). This is a fairly new website and its companion blog, but it’s growing.
Be wise… be frugal.
