Frugal Week Planner for 19 April to 25 April 2017

We only have one planet and our planet’s resources are limited. Vanishing species, deforestation, energy depletion, climate change, pollution, and the dumping of waste all threaten our survival. Let us not forget this as we approach Earth Day (Saturday, 22 April). After all, frugality is not just about finding bargains, it’s about sustainability, saving and sparing resources, reducing waste, and protecting our future.

Frugal Week Planner for 29 March to 4 April 2017

The first Frugal Week Planner (published in 2014 – boy, how time flies) began when two Singaporeans on the same day commented about how boring Singapore was, saying that in order to have fun and great experiences, one would have to spend a lot of money and/or go overseas. Since then, this site has listed over 500 frugal events per year (90% of which are free or complementary). And on occasions, I would receive messages of thanks for all the work that goes into publishing the weekly list. So it is with great sadness that I tell you this will be the very last Frugal Week Planner…. April Fools!!! 🙂
