FAQ or in our case Frugally Answered Questions
Q: So who are you guys?
A: Well, by day we're mild manner reporters for a great metropolitan newspaper, but at night... Nah, follow this link for our propaganda - WHO ARE WE?
Q: If you're a Frugal Yankee, does that mean you don't like the Red Sox?
A: May a thousand Bucky Dents invade your dreams for thinking such a thought. The Frugal Yankees are New Englanders and the Red Sox are part of the joy, and anguish, of living in this section of the country.
Q: Is frugal cheap?
A: No. Frugal is all about being smart with your money and your life. These are great New England traditions and something we need to remind ourselves of every now and then. Cheap has a negative ring to it. My great uncle was cheap. When he squeezed a penny, Abe had a tear in his eye.
Q: I see you have TIPS. Do you have a favorite one?
A: Almost all of our tips are useful, but if I were to chose one tip, it would be swishing a 50-50 combo of hydrogen peroxide and water in your mouth after one of those dreaded pizza burns. The combo pulls off the dead skin, calms the jangling nerves and promotes the healing process, but do yourself a favor, don't swallow it.
Q: So what's the deal with FACTOIDS?
A: Don't tell anyone, but I'm a know-it-all, always have been. I just love little bits of useless or semi-useless information. I spread them around at parties or over the phone. It makes me sound smarter than I am.
Q: OK, so what's your favorite FACTOID?
A: There are so many to chose from it is difficult. I like the one about how it takes 8 gallons of water to make one gallon of Coke. Or how children will see thousands marketing messages a day! But I guess the one I like the best these days is how folks who listen to country music allegedly have a higher rate of suicide.
