The best things in life might not always be free, but they can usually be had at a bargain. The Frugal Bon Vivant serves up deals, coupon & promo codes, how-tos, and tips on enjoying the good life on a budget. Frugal living since 1981. :)

We started the Frugal Bon Vivant in 2009 to share deals and our bon vivant approach to frugal living! We’ve always been suckers for a deal – enjoy cruising for discounts online, endlessly researching the best products to buy and making a house a home. When we’re not scouring the web for deals we can be found enjoying the great outdoors, dreaming about travel, drinking massive cups of coffee, and creating extensive lists… among a few other things. We also love the inspiration brought on by traveling, the nostalgia of estates sales and vintage finds, and the optimism of gardening and homemade creations.
