    Before I joined frugal village we were making double the money, yet had no savings, so much debt and nothing to show for it. When I joined frugal village it was because our income was cut in half and we didnt know how we were going to survive. With half the income now we have more than we did before, only have one debt (recently incurred) and actually have money in a savings account!! I have learned too many things here to mention and really appreciate this site!

    What I enjoy most is the community spirit - I've always been on the frugal side, but it's nice to have on online pat on the back when you can score free groceries or get your electric bill down.

    I have been an off and on member here at FV for a year or so, but I find myself here now more than ever and I am learning SO much from those of you who are FAR more frugal than I have been. I am learning to make our funds stretch, to stock up for rainy days and DH is very proud of me!

    before I joined FV, I was doing ok. I was paying of debt and I was tracking my payments and progress.

    after I joined FV I have really been attacking my debt. The funny thing is that I am working much less at my p.t. job so I have less income but I am doing a better job of stretching it.

    thank you to all of you who post here, give tips and help offer your hugs and support. this is the best site on the internet for frugal living IMHO....

    Hugs to all ya Frugal ladies and gentlemen out there !!!!

    You guys are the greatest and you have really helped me a lot with my goals and with my motivation !!

    Before FV I was only a wee bit frugal - but I did realise that things had to change.
    After joining, I read what everyone else had done/is doing and it gave me SO much motivation to look for more ways to cut back.

    The greatest strength of FV in my opinion is the genuine friendliness of the members. There is always someone who will answer you with advice or just a kind word of encouragement.
    This is such a simple thing in itself but is so powerful when you need it most.
    I feel honored to be a part of this forum.
    ((((HUGS))))
