Photo & Prompt Challenge: Day 23 – Frugal Novice

Photo & Prompt Challenge: Day 23

Today’s Challenge: How did you come up with the name of your blog?

I’ve inherited a sense of frugality from my parents, especially my mom. She’s always been great about clipping coupons and finding sales. When I started my blog I was amazed at how many people had couponing down to a science – if you’ve read any about how people use the ExtraCare Bucks at CVS, you know what I’m talking about! I felt (and really, still feel) like a newbie at figuring out the best way to save money, so I came up with the name Frugal Novice. When I first started blogging, I thought I’d only write about deals and saving money… but then I quickly realized I wouldn’t be able to last long writing with such a narrow focus, so I expanded the type of topics I write about. There are a few times I’ve wished I’d picked something a little more broad, but now it just fits, kind of like names of children always seem to do. :)

    I think your name works well for deals and beyond. You’re lucky that way!

    I always wonder how people come up with names for their blogs. I’m with blueviolet and I think it works well…it is just the main focus of your blog, but you don’t have to be limited to just that. My blog’s name is about my kids and I write about more than just them. :-)
