The Dental HyGenie knows it’s easy to get lost in the money-saving blogosphere. Keeping up with all of the frugal living blogs and personal finance resources can be a full-time gig for any consumer.
So last week, I decided to take a break from dental care savings and itemizing my dental expenses to compile a list of blogs I check out (and you can too). Without further money-saving ado, here are my top 9½ frugal blogs, in alphabetical order, and Twitter handles for real-time tips:
