Which Frugal Bloggers Are Most Influential?

Ylan Mui

The Associated Press had an interesting story today about the five most influential frugal mommy bloggers, according to a Nielsen analysis. They are:

Common Sense With Money
Five Dollar Dinners
Coupon Mom
Money-Saving Mom
Freebies 4 Mom

What do you think of the list -- other than it obviously overlooked a certain Small Change! (Though neither Nancy nor I are moms, so I guess that would disqualify us.) Send us your must-read suggestions!

Hands down, the best frugality blog is The Simple Dollar. It's not always about frugality in the narrowest sense of the word; sometimes he writes about productivity (although I'd argue that saving time can often = saving money), sometimes the broader realm of personal finance. But he writes well regardless of the topic.

I also like Get Rich Slowly. I don't know how to hyperlink here, but if you Google them both, their blogs come up as the first hits.

As far as "mommy bloggers," my favorites are Baby Cheapskate and the Simple Mom.

I agree - the Simple Dollar is great. I also enjoy the Smart Spending blog on And it technically isn't a blog but the Dollar Stretcher is an excellent site which features articles about, well, stretching dollars!
