The Festival of Frugality is being hosted by one of my favorite blogs - the DigeratiLife. It features me post on Car Saving Tips. I don't think of my self as a frugal person but I guess by most peoples definition, I am.
There's a post that caught my eye - Always Ask for a Discount. Often people will think of asking for a discount at hotels, but not other areas. Here's a tip I learned - if you have a business you can get contractor discounts. When you are remodeling a home, for example, you can often get prices below Home Depot or Lowes by going to a local wholesale supply store and buying material as a contractor. For example, I saved about $15oo off of Lowes price on replacement windows I bought for a house I am remodeling.
