Many people being forced into tight budgets for the first time are depressed. They feel like they have to give up all of the fun and pleasure in their lives. And many frugal living websites encourage this thinking. So many frugality websites and groups focus on "getting by" and "surviving" in a tough economy but none of them really deal with living, enjoying, and thriving on a tight budget. But it's entirely possible to do more than scrape by on a lean budget.
That's why I created this blog, to share ideas on how to forget about surviving and get on to living, and living well on a budget.
