End of Frugal Year Review

This is traditionally the time of year when magazine editors and TV executives have run out of good ideas and simply rely on re-hashing their previous 12 months of output in the form of 'Best of...' shows or the equally pointless 'Review of the Year' feature.  It's a sickening indictment of our modern culture that we can only celebrate the opportunities that a new year bestows upon us by regurgitating the nonsense that has gone before.  Disgusting.

On a completely unrelated topic, here's some of my favourite frugal blog posts from the last year...
In addition, we had some excellent advice by Pete on creating the perfect games night, a really good article by Arabian Knight on use of proxy models and an interesting piece by Von (on army selection and points versus pounds cost).  I’d be interested to know what the best and worst model points versus pennies ratio is in the game.  If anyone has any thoughts let me know.  Von also provided some advice to all frugal gamers.

I hope you've all had a Frugal year and are staring to plan the next one already.  Overall my year has been very successful; I've spent less and gamed more than in 2009 and I've got even more followers on the blog.  Many thanks to Arabian Knight, Pete and Von for all their work over the past year and I hope they'll carry on their frugal mission in the new year.

My posts will return in the January with a new look blog and more Frugal goodness.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all!
