Frugal Dad takes the basics of finances (and I mean really basic) and helps regular people translate it into saving money and making better financial decisions. What I love about Frugal Bab is that he usually does it with easy and fun to read graphics that are more like reading a cartoon that financial advise. And the best part? You get done reading it and don’t even realize you’ve learned something! It was enjoyable!
Frugal Dad also has an entire portion of his website devoted to coupons. What you may not realize is that you don’t just want to look for coupons for when you do your grocery shopping. He has links to coupons for major brands: coupons for The Gap, Autozone, Dell, iTunes, Legos, or even coupons at Pur, just to name a few. Check out his Coupons & Deals page before making any purchase, because he just might know a way to save yourself money.
Frugal Dad also has the belief that students shouldn’t graduate from college already concerned about the amount of debt they’re carrying. From this belief, as well as passion for high education, Frugal Dad started the Frugal Dad Undergraduate Scholarship, which awards $5,000 to each of two students annually. This program commences June 2012, so if you know any deserving students, make sure to send them on over to Frugal Dad. Not only can they apply for a scholarship, they can also learn how to stop debt before it starts!
Frugal Dad has been featured in Kiplinger, The New York Times, BusinessWeek, as well as many other media outlets. His views on finance are refreshing and fun. Finances can be so serious, and for many Americans, such a dire situation that they don’t even want to discuss it or read about it. Frugal Dad makes it so easy to start helping yourself that you’ll find yourself coming back to his site daily to learn more tidbits of valuable insight on how to keep your money in your wallet.
