Extreme Frugality: Festival of Frugality

I am so excited to be the host of Festival of Frugality this week! To all of my regular readers who don't know, Festival of Frugality happens every Tuesday. Bloggers send in their best frugal ideas and one frugal blogger gets to play host and choose the best of the best frugal ideas to post.

When I look for blogs to read, I am usually looking for someone who is living a lifestyle similar to us, which I would term Extreme Frugality. I know most people out there are not raising their families on one part-time income like the Bushmans, but this week I wanted to spotlight those ideas from bloggers that I consider to represent the extreme. Are they too extreme? I’ll let you be the judge . . .
