Meet the Frugalwoods
- Achieving Financial Independence Through Simple Living
- By: Elizabeth Willard Thames
- Narrated by: Ann Marie Gideon
- Length: 5 hrs and 41 mins
In 2014, Elizabeth and Nate Thames were conventional 9-5 young urban professionals. But the couple had a dream to become modern-day homesteaders in rural Vermont. Determined to retire as early as possible in order to start living each day - as opposed to wishing time away working for the weekends - they enacted a plan to save an enormous amount of money: well over 70 percent of their joint take-home pay. Dubbing themselves the Frugalwoods, Elizabeth began documenting their unconventional frugality and the resulting wholesale lifestyle transformation on their eponymous blog.
Sex and the City without the sex and lots of fluff

Entertaining, inspirational and educational.
I really enjoyed this book, so much that I listened to it all in one day. The financial advice wasn’t anything new but the way of thinking about what you spend your money on was inspiring. I immediately cancelled all of my unnecessary subscriptions and reconsidered my shopping habits. I have a new found motivation to create savings with a positive attitude rather than feeling deprived. Something I haven’t felt through reading any other ‘financial’ book.
