|Penny from Penniless Parenting|
I’m chatting with Penny from the popular blog Penniless Parenting, where she describes herself as a “frugalista extraordinaire!”
Q – You admit that some of your ideas might work for others while some might not. For instance when you shared about “family cloth” instead of toilet paper for the bathroom, you got a quite a mixed response from readers! You’ve also written candidly about accepting free surplus food and being resourceful with it. To what extent do attitudes either prevent or help families be able to live frugally?
Q – Do you ever feel like your children might be “missing out” because they aren’t exposed to as many trips to the store or necessarily have the latest, most popular toys? What do you think they’re learning from the family lifestyle?
