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. :)
