Wendy Jonas Imura publishes a newsletter about being frugal in Japan. She always has something interesting to say as a person who has her finger on the pulse of the frugal scene. The newsletter is called Frugal Watch.
Today's Frugal Watch installment is about "radical frugality", such as one woman's project to wear a brown dress every single day for a year and another woman's year without shopping. Wendy never suggests going quite that far, but it is interesting to see the concept of frugality taken to an extreme.
If you are interested in learning about how to save your yennies in one of the most expensive countries in the world, Wendy's a person you will want to know.
