Modern Tightwad

Modern Tightwad is about graciously building wealth through thrift, while putting the stereotypical notion of a "tightwad" on its tush. We're not cheap, stodgy, or unkind. We just believe in saving our pennies. You'll find frugal living tips, personal finance information, and occasionally rampant sarcasm.

The tips in this blog are geared to people who are trying to survive and find ways to live happily on lower incomes. We don't believe that the amount of money you make has anything to do with the joy you take in life, how charitable you can be, and the freedom you can have.
