Examples of Lady Moustachian Writers/Bloggers?
« on: August 20, 2013, 10:11:53 AM »
Hello there! I'm writing a piece about different ways to quit the rat race. One of the strategies that I'm writing about is intense saving (or Moustachianism).

I've got lots of good examples of men who have written about intense saving as a way to early retirement (MMM himself, Jacob at Early Retirement Extreme etc). I'd like to include a female role model for this approach. Does anyone happen to know of any lady moustachians who have written about their story? I am looking for blogs or a book or something that I can link people to. Can also be a historical example. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

Amy Dacyczyn wrote a newsletter called The Tightwad Gazette that's now a book as well.

ETA a ton of the female posters here have blogs.  AllYouNeedIsEnough.com is one with a lot of great content.  I believe her screen name here is Phoebe.

+1 for SkinnyFlints. I've been lurking on MMM for the past few weeks and found her Tumblr blog through here. I can't get enough of it! Katnina, if you (or your sister) see this, please post more often!

Not sure how well she fits into your criteria, but Millionaire Mommy Next Door is one I read now and then: http://millionairemommynextdoor.com/about-me/

Thanks for the reminder! I discovered this one in 2009 along with ERE, I had totally forgotten about it!

I am super appreciating this thread, as I sometimes feel that the "female side" of the PF blogosphere is dominated by super-coupon-moms (not that there's anything wrong with that, but I don't really relate!).  So, although I have no good additional blogs to suggest, thanks for asking!

The co-author of Your Money or Your Life would be a good subject
