Welcome to The Thrifty Housewife Blog! Everyone knows that in this rough economy, finding any extra way to save is of the utmost importance. However, when the economy does get better, you may find that living a frugal lifestyle is something you would like to continue. Not only is it better for your wallet, but I have found that living frugally is also better for the environment. Every time I look at a list of how to live "environmentally friendly", I find that I already do much of what is recommended simply by being thrifty and living frugally. Let's sit back, have some fun, and find more ways to save!
