Welcome to Forced to be Frugal. The site where I learn step by step to be frugal and live on a budget. I’ve always been one of those people that just go out and get what I want, not rich by any means but comfortable. But times they are changing. I’m faced with the prospect that if I don’t curb my spending I will not be able to pay all my bills. So here we go…. I’ll take you through my journey into the world of living on a budget and trying to erase debt. Each of the methods I try, special deals and giveaways I find, recipes, bargains, events and more will be laid out at your feet. I hope to hear your thoughts and ideas as well.
