As Benjamin Franklin, the innovative and legendary oracle of frugality, once said...
"Human felicity is produced not so much by great pieces of good fortune that seldom happen, as by little advantages that occur every day."
Consider this frugal living blog a distillery for my frequently added "little advantages" to empower you in your own frugal pursuit of happiness.

I'm absolutely loving all the free movies, apps, books, games, FREE 2-day shipping, music, ect. Really happy with my Amazon Fire TV Stick + Prime benefits.
If your TV is not a smart TV, then consider getting Fire TV stick or console too. My Fire TV Stick was super easy to set up. It turned my TV into a smart TV. Fire TV Stick w/ voice search cost me only about $35 and it allows me to access all the Amazon Prime membership benefits and content on my HD TV. Great way to cut the cable/satellite bills. Love the voice search too. Very convenient for finding movie titles, trivia, weather, ect.
Click above image to explore all the great benefits of Prime and check out Fire TV section too. This is a no-brainer investment. You get a LOT of value in excess of this low cost, especially if you grab this sale today.

Did you know this very website helps pay my bills? I get to help others by sharing information about frugal living and achieving financial independence while working from home, and I absolutely love it!
Unfortunately before starting Frugalicity.com I wasn't very technically inclined when it comes to building websites or an e-business.
But luckily I found the below all-inclusive system that enabled even a complete web newbie like me to turn my hobbies and passions into hands-free income online while also growing a real and growing business that also has equity.
This has greatly expanded my ability to realistically make a living from anywhere on the planet. And all the know-how I've gained since starting has really broadened my horizons and options in life.
If I ever did go back to a day job (yuck!), all these new skills and demonstrated achievement makes me a more valuable employee too. So you bolster your resume and back-up plans too.
Best of all I love how my websites keep right on earning a steady income while I'm sleeping or even while I'm on a month long vacation (something a corporate job would never allow for)!
It's all hassle-free. No selling, no inventory, no shipping, and no 9-to-5 stress.
For the daily cost of a cup of coffee, it includes EVERYTHING needed for just about anyone of any technical ability to build a thriving e-business - from top notch step-by-step guidance, to all the terrific web tools to easily put the time-tested know-how into action.
Drag and drop page builder and research/marketing tools are amazing. And there's a thriving helpful community of professionals and top-notch support. It also includes your web domain renewal + truly UNLIMITED hosting + much much more.
Anyone sick of the Rat Race will love the possibilities. I know I do:)

P.S. This is definitely NOT get rich quick. It's hard work, but it's work you'll love and be able to do in your spare time. It's fun to realize there is no limit to what you can build on your own. And the rewards make it all well worth the effort.
Here's a quick overview of the system I use to build independence...

When you shop online you can stack cachback and coupon deals to save HUGE amounts off your purchases. I often save as much as 50% and usually get free shipping too.
Sometimes it feels like stealing candy from a baby. You can't do this technique offline.
I'll often begin online shopping by signing into my free Ebates account. Sign up by following the below link for extra special deals.
Ebates is the leading cashback and deals site on the web. I search for the item or retailer using the top search box on their site. The percents off and other promos can be very juicy, especially today! It's fun finding all those huge percents off.
Ebates currently has some really great coupons such as 50% OFF any order at certain retailers...FREE shipping...AND they'll often give you 5% - 10% extra cashback on top of other promotions + a special bonus just for signing up free here today!
Save huge at thousands of other favorite retailers too. BUT also consider stacking the savings and cashback awards by paying with a cashback credit card when you checkout on the retailer's website. I usually use my Discover Card for extra juicy percentage off my orders in addition to the savings Ebates automatically awards and tracks when I start shopping there!
So by stacking the cashback and deals like this it is not difficult to frequently score savings of 50%+ with free shipping too! (but be sure and pay off your balance every month...I NEVER pay interest!)
Think about it. When you go through all the hassles of offline shopping..the traffic, the lines, the cramped aisles, ect. you don't get the same level of savings. Offline percent off deals are often a mirage or not nearly as big as what you can get online and by stacking cashback sites and payment via awards cards. So bigger savings, gas savings, time savings, and less stress are all reasons I much prefer online shopping, particularly today which is "Cyber Monday".
As I noted in my previous post, I avoid the human chaos and aggravation involved with brick and mortar store shopping around the holidays. See Black Friday chaos videos below.
There are other money saving benefits to shopping from the comfort and safety of home. When you shop online you can not only avoid all the hassles, but you can also shop through cash-back websites which link to the best deals and return to you a nice percentage of whatever you spend. You can't get this extra layer of savings unless you shop online.
Here's my favorite cash-back savings site. They are the world leader, and they seem to always give the most back and offer the best deals too...
And right now Ebates has DOUBLED the percentages they will give you back on your online purchases for most leading online retailers!
Here's just a sampling of their many Double Cash-back deals right now. Click image to see hundreds more listed on their site. Sign up, get a $10 gift card of your choice, then start shopping...
Monday is "Cyber Monday" and will mean some extra special online deals, plus all those leading up to Christmas and then afterwards too. Just be sure to first log into Ebates' site, then follow their links to the sales in order to get your cash back rewards deposited into your Ebates account after purchases are made at the retailers' sites.
It's a totally painless way to get lots of cash back on all online purchases!
This is how I do it every time and I regularly score as much as 60% savings - never paying full price for anything.
Wishing you happy holidays and extreme frugality in all your future online shopping! - Marc

I once had the same dream that millions of other people have, which was to live life on MY terms, rather than those of a corporation. For as long as I can remember I've yearned to work for myself at a home business that I fully owned and which would give me the freedom to do what I want...and when I want.
