This week’s woot is all about Frugalwoods chilling out on various different parts of the world wide web.

Firstly, please head on over to 1500 Days to Freedom where Mr. Frugalwoods, Frugal Hound, and I are featured today! Many thanks to Mr. 1500 for inviting us to participate in his ongoing series “10 Questions And A Pizza Place.” We’re honored and thrilled!


Today’s interview with Mr. 1500 is the awesomest icing on what has been an amazing week of cake-eating for our little ol’ Frugalwoods.

My “Why I’m Not Buying Any Clothes in 2014” post went sorta viral. I say “sorta” because it was humongous for us, but no big shakes for much larger blogs. The post was featured on Rockstar Finance last Friday and then got picked up by Lifehacker on Monday! This yielded our highest traffic ever and made me so excited I did an exuberant dance at my standing desk at work (my colleagues now suspect I’m even crazier than previously assumed…).


I’m grumbling because you’re still reading this and aren’t over on 1500 Days! Git!

No pizza for hounds

    1. Wow, thank you! That means a lot to me! And, I really appreciate you featuring us in Rockstar (even though I know you just wanted to borrow my star skirt).

  1. I was SO happy to see your post picked up by Rockstar. J Money has played a large role in my blog’s success over the past year. And funnily because you got picked up by those two sites and you link to one of my posts in that article, that post has gotten crazy traffic over the last week too. So funny! I hope you guys have a great weekend!

    1. That’s awesome, Shannon! I’m so glad to hear it! I love that ripple effect and cross-promotion. Woo hoo!!!

  2. Congrats on being featured on Rockstar and Lifehacker!! Loved reading the 1500 post, I am in complete agreement that you need to marry the right person when it comes to all things finance. Have a great weekend!

    1. Thank you so much! I do think marrying the right person helps a lot–at the very least, it makes finances easier if you’re on the same page. Hope you have a great weekend too.

  3. I’ve been seeing your FH face around the webs.
    I came over from Mr. 1500 and I clicked over and read your viral post. It really was great! The outfits you feature were cute!
    I’m glad clothes shopping has never been an issue for me but i hear you on the emotional spending. I just had a bad month for that in September.
    Like J.Money said you have been pumping out article. i just took a glimpse at your archive numbers. How do you find the time to write!

    1. Thank you so much! I really appreciate you stopping by! I write in the evenings after work, the mornings before work, and on the weekends :). I love writing, so it’s truly a pleasure for me.

    1. Thank you, Debs! We totally dance with Frugal Hound–how did you know?? She’s a great boogie-er with her loooooong neck 🙂

  4. Congrats on all the mentions! Must be exciting for you all. =) I saw a couple walking two greyhounds yesterday in our apartment complex and I felt compelled to stalk them as they were adorable. Unfortunately they got away while we were trying to be inconspicuous. Just thought I’d let you know. Heading over to read your interview!

    1. Thank you so much, Erin! We are beyond excited over here :)! I stalk people w/greyhound all the time too 🙂

  5. Super happy for you on all fronts 🙂 J. Money had picked up one of my posts earlier this summer for Rockstar Finance and the traffic was something else!

  6. Congrats on being shared around the web. I agree that it’s super exciting. You have a really fun writing style and a really good message, so I’m not surprised at all the recognition.

    1. Thank you! Well, she is pretty happy about having her photos all over the place… but, she’s still a hound 🙂

  7. “What is the best financial move you have made?
    1) Marrying the right person.”

    Bingo. Constructive interference can happen with people too.

    1. It really makes a difference, I’ve got to say. There’s just nothing quite like a partner whose views about money align with your own.
