What is Frugal Upstate about?

It’s a blog about living a good life, on a budget.  It’s not all about coupons and bargains, as a matter of fact those topics are rarely included.  It’s about all the other choices you make and the activities you do.  Gardening, canning, mending, cooking from scratch, thrift shopping, home improvements, sewing, decorating, frugal entertainment. . . all those active things readers can do to live a cost conscious life.

While there is no one size fits all solution, Frugal Upstate has a little something for everyone. Readers can learn about projects, recipes, tips, reviews and products for them to consider incorporating into their own frugal lifestyle.
