Having fun with less money, and
getting the most out of what we've got!

Frugal is good for your wallet and for the environment. Saving on one lets you splurge on another. Most importantly we are grateful for the abundance in our lives.

Frugal ( adj )

1. economical; prudently saving; not wasteful
2. entailing little expense; requiring few resources; thrifty

Specifically:  We want people who love bargains and share the wealth. We're savvy, not stingy. We get a free meal and tip double. We can pull a broken door out of the dumpster and paint it for a garden mural. We can wait in line for hours and make friends, not a fuss. Ya dig?

Our Meetup Philosophy:
We strive to be original, unique, creative and clever.  So we avoid cross-posting events, we always cite our sources, and we avoid setting repeat events on auto-pilot. We do enjoy monthly traditions like board game nights and poker parties, and seasonal favorites like clothing swaps and potlucks. Our posts are written with care and lots of research (with an occasional quick no-host post for FYI :-)

Membership is $2 per year
Meetup.com charges every group $144 per year for web hosting, so we think the group should help split the bill.  Your donation helps the Organizers pay for the site, plus nametags and party supplies.  In the past, we had 2,000 free members ... but we decided to try quality over quantity for a while, and focus on a stronger community with fewer members, who actively participate.

No-Shows Suck!
We understand that mistakes happen, but if you RSVP Yes to an event and then repeatedly no-show, we'll remove you from the group.

Verify Before Going
When we add an event to the calendar, sometimes it's weeks in advance -- always check the event page for updates, and if it's an FYI only post, contact the venue to verify the event details.

If you're frugally experienced, you know that some deals take a lot of patience. We've sat through bogus pitches, stood in lines for hours, set up fake email addresses ... all for the thrill of saving money. Please join us with a happy sense of adventure --  'cuz if something goes haywire and you're a downer, we'll ask you to find a meetup that better suits your attitude instead.
