After a little vacation, Frugal-Community is back and has a few new exciting features!! Frugal-Community now has its own Facebook and Twitter pages that will serve as a conversation space where not only me, but all of you blog followers, can share your own frugal thoughts! If you come across a great frugal idea, article, blog, event, activity, . . . share it with the whole community by posting it to our Facebook page or #frugalcommunity. Whether you are from the Twin Cities or not, please feel free to post events from your area. More than likely there is a similar event in another area, if not maybe it will spark someone to begin one. When these pages get enough activity, I hope to start a Frugal Idea of the Week section in the sidebar that will feature the best reader idea posted via Facebook or Twitter on that given week. So like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter to join in on the fun!
Welcome to the new frugal-community page!! We took your survey responses into consideration and have added quite a few new features to the blog page. Have a look around and let us know what you think! Here are some of our cool new features:
Header Image: Our new header image was created by local artist, Tyler Pomroy to illustrate the blogs focus on sharing, saving, and spending. Thanks Tyler!
Google Calendar: One of the most exciting features of the new blog is the Frugal-Community event calendar (located in the side bar to the right of this post on the main page). This is a Google Calendar that will feature fun and frugal events that are happening in the Twin Cities area. Right now, I have some featured events for March, especially St. Patty’s Day, and a few for April. I will continue updating this calendar, but I need your help! If you know of fun and frugal events going on around town please post the event information and link as a comment on this blog post or any of our weekly blog posts and I will add it to the calendar.
