What is the difference between frugal and cheap? Many of my family and friends ask me this question from time to time and the only answer I can give them is this; Frugal to me means saving money where ever possible. I shop at thrift stores, I love yard sales and I'm always searching for new ways to save money around the house. Cheap to me means buying something that costs little, even though it's not made very well and you know it will break very quickly; you still end up bringing it home. I think it's more cost effective to buy once; instead of having to buy 4 a month. Don't get me wrong, some of the cheaper items are amazing and will out last more expensive items, just get your frugal shopping hat on and away you go.
Who doesn't love a good sale. Let Frugalwithflair help you along the way.

Trying to find all those wonderful free samples, product and beta tests, blog for money or any other sites that seem to be hidden under a mountain of fake and scam sites? When I first started out, I had no idea where to start or how to look; because simple phrases like, "free samples", could pop the most interesting websites on the computer screen. It became very frustrating, time consuming, it had my head spinning for weeks. Join in on the discussion in the forums, visit the blog page or just have a look around.
