Forget earning more. Let’s talk frugality

Over the last few months, I’ve noticed a change in the type of posts that my readers are looking for. It’s not about investments, or asset allocation, or entrepreneurship. In this economy, people want to save money — period.

That’s why I launched the Save $1,000 in 30 Days Challenge. That’s also why I launched The Scrooge Strategy.

And looking back, when I launched the Trent/Ramit Challenge, it’s clear I was wrong. I’ve been making fun of frugality tips for too long.

$3.00 lattes? It adds up: That’s over $700 per year, or $17,500 over 25 years (and that doesn’t count investing).

Eating out? Forget it. I’m announcing a new set of tips on how to avoid eating out at any cost.

And finally, going out. Have you ever spend $10 on a cover charge or $9 on a drink? That’s ridiculous. You could be putting that toward your retirement. I’m launching a new series on free things you can do on your weekends and dates instead of spending money.

I’m sick and tired of yuppies saying it’s ok to spend money on $300 purses and new iPhones every year. I’m guilty of this as much as anyone.

Today, I’m announcing a new program because my readers asked for it. I Will Teach You To Be Rich Frugal will be the new name of the game. I hope you guys understand.

  1. I was frugal until I received my AMEX black card, so much for frugality

  2. ANOTHER April Fool’s ‘joke’. The web is basically unreadable on April 1st.

  3. Great joke!

    But then, I actually saved/earned $18,700 in ’08 using coupons for groceries.

    Can’t wait to see your new Frugal tips! 😀

  4. happy April 1 to you too!

  5. Whew! You really scared me for a minute there.

  6. I don’t like the physical type AF jokes, unless I’m watching them be done to other people. I do like the intellectual ones. Gmail Autopilot is my favorite this year.

    Ramit, don’t forget teaching people to get the free phones on contract rather than a subsidized iPhone. You can save hundreds with a free, cheap phone.

  7. Really funny; yup you cannot believe anything you read today

  8. Thank you SO much for starting this amazing series! You know, I had you all wrong, Ramit. I thought you were out of your mind to endorse certain activities like drinking $3.00 lattes every day or paying massive cover charges to go into a club. This is exactly what I’ve been looking for from this blog since it launched. I’m going to forward this to my friends and family and let them know that you have expanded your offerings to readers, and encourage them all to stay tuned. /sarcasm Happy Fool’s Day!

  9. Happy April fools to you too, Ramit…

  10. Oooh Ramit. Here I am messing with peoples’ printers to read “Insert Coin” instead of “Ready”, and you’re outdoing yourself. Clearly I was “doin’ it wrong”. =p

    Keep up the good work, bro.
