I’m not what you would call a social media junkie, but I am fairly social media proficient; I use Twitter and Facebook, both as tools professionally and personally. And of course I blog which is, lest we forget, one of the most common social media or Web 2.0 tools around.
I was interested in how others use social media to become more frugal, so I put the question to others on Twitter: How do you use social media to become more frugal? And here’s what they had to say:
- Enga71429@AlmostFrugal by teaming up with people like you to find out all the deals:)
- mmmeg@AlmostFrugal I’m inspired by friends I’ve met on Twitter to be more frugal. Plus they are a great source of useful links.
- GreenestDollar@AlmostFrugal I actually learn a lot of $-saving tips on Twitter, and can find out about frugal bloggers and $-saving sites.
- BabyCheapskate@AlmostFrugal Not to give the obvious answer, but I’ve found out about tons of deals posted on frugal bloggers’ sites via Twitter.
- frugalforlife@AlmostFrugal They help me look back and see what I have done or thought about – small steps through frugality.
How do you use social media to become (or stay) frugal?
