Savvy Frugality has been featured in a few carnivals this week. Budgets are Sexy hosts this week's Festival of Frugality, which featured Savvy Frugality's post Grow Your Own Recession Victory Garden. My own personal garden is just a small herb garden, but it has saved me plenty. Other posts worth checking out at the Festival of Frugality include:

DR from The Dough Roller gives us a detailed step-by-step tutorial entitled The Ultimate Guide to Starting a Money Making WordPress Blog. Great information here if you write well and are looking to start a money-making blog. I never started Savvy Frugality to make money, and it really doesn't make much. It's the first blog I started on my own and it has been a fun and educational experience.
