Welcome to The Penny Pincher! My name is Al, I'm a frugal blogger, and this is my personal blog, sharing my hints, tips, and general information, on ways to make and save a little extra money, by becoming a little more frugal, and thinking outside the box.
All the hints and tips I give, are tried and tested by myself, to ensure they do what they say they will do, and my blog posts will all follow a general frugality theme, plus you will also find some of my favourite offers and deals, that I think my readers may be able to make use of. Don't forget to follow me on Facebook, Instagram & Twitter, for the most up to date information, and additional content, that is often time sensitive and won't make it on to the website! Please do let me know what you find interesting, not interesting, and feel free to contact me with any questions or suggestions you may have!
