Kat let me know what you think about my idea.
« on: December 01, 2007, 10:14 PM NHFT »

Kat I was wondering if it would be worth while to start a new category for people to post great sales on stuff people find, free stuff and other great deals people come across.  Users could coop with each other to buy in bulk when good stuff comes up.
Thanks
Kate

That could be very useful. It also minimizes risk for other people (ie, Bob can provide feedback on a product/service for Alice, so she doesn't have to risk getting screwed if said product is bad/not right for her circumstances).

Hey now! I prefer the term frugal:P

Make no mistake, I may cut corners on some goods, but that's just so I can spend more on other things.  ;D


Hmmmmm....  Free, Frugal and Fantastic Finds? Too many eff's?   :D

F&(king Frugal Finds? 8-) That might not be appropriate for kids though... What about Cost-cutting Coordination?

I do like like the name Pat came up with.

Having all the frugal threads here would make sense.

Name it Frugal or Free?  Co-op Shop? 
Ummm... freewriting here, just jotting down whatever comes into my head.   
None may sound good yet, but at least I'm giving it a shot: 
how about Cheapies & Freebies?

Cheap bastard sub forum works for me. 
I like the idea putting all the frugal threads together too. 
Shop, swap, barter, sell & buy ... post bargain deals when we see them.
yep, cooperation is good

All is well.

Thank you Kat for running with my idea. 

I hope this will help everyone not just this wannabe frugal chick.
