Blogger Natalie McNeal, once a promiscuous spender, took a vow of frugality in February. When March 1 rolled around, she was delighted to find that she had saved $400. McNeal discusses her ongoing quest to save cash — and how she's managing without manicures, eating out, and clothes she wanted, but doesn't really need.

She chronicles her thrifty experiences on the Miami Herald blog The Frugalista Flies: The frugal side of fabulous.
