New York, NY (PRWEB) April 11, 2009
Fabulous & Frugal (http://www.fabandfru.com) launched in late October 2008, at the end of one of the most volatile months on record for the stock market. Although the timing was serendipitous, Fab & Fru is not intended as a quick recession fix. It's a way of life and a philosophy Fab & Fru founders and editors-in-chief Brandi Savitt and Stephanie Berenbaum embraced more than a decade ago and are now sharing with women everywhere. In addition to writing articles based on their own experiences, they bring readers advice from today's most relevant financial and lifestyle experts. Equal parts finance, fashion, design and entertaining, Fabulous & Frugal helps women take control of their financial futures and live the life they want for less than ever imagined.
Recent Fab & Fru articles have ranged from preparing for tax day to planting a recession garden. Anyone who has put off filing their taxes will find Fab and Fru's article "Making April 15th Less Taxing" helpful. The article offers Federal Income Tax basics from a Certified Public Accountant and a link to the best kept secret of the IRS, Publication 17. The go-to guide for accountants and tax professionals, Publication 17 is a detailed yet easy to navigate guide that tells readers everything they need to know from how to fill out forms, to figuring out tax brackets, to explaining adjustments, deductions, and credits eligibility.
Budget-conscious brides will find great tips in FabandFru's "Tying the Knot on a Shoestring" article. With suggestions from an event planner and lots of examples from her own and friends' weddings, Steph offers ideas on everything from saving on the alcohol at the reception to an alternative to floral centerpieces to a unique idea for the wedding cake.
Fab & Fru's "Recession Gardening" article will help anyone with a green, or even black, thumb get started and help maximize the return on their garden investment. The National Gardening Association (http://www.garden.org) predicts a 19 percent increase in home gardening in 2009 and whether the increased interest is due to Michele Obama's White House vegetable garden, people trying to reduce their grocery bills, folks wanting a greener lifestyle, or those who just want to beautify their life, it doesn't matter. Whatever the reason, Brandi and Steph say "gardening is totally Fab & Fru" and offer tips and lots of pictures for inspiration.
