Whether looking for a free concert, hoping to save on bowling or needing a bouquet of flowers, Cheap & Cheerful Los Angeles (http://cheapandcheerfulla.blogspot.com) provides tips on where to go and how to save.
"The web is already overrun with Mommy blogs and Nightclub blogs," explains founder, Cinnia Curran Finfer. "Cheap & Cheerful Los Angeles is for everyone: tourists, students, singles, young families and seniors all can benefit from the information we provide. Having lived in Los Angeles for more than 25 years, I wanted to share places and services where residents and tourists could have a great time or get excellent service without breaking the bank."
Cheap & Cheerful?
(British informal): costing little money but attractive, pleasant and enjoyable.
"When I was in my 20's, I hung out with a lot of British and South African people who were on working vacations in Los Angeles. They didn't have a lot of spending cash, but were determined to experience Los Angeles to the fullest. So there was always a sharing of information: a great club, a nice little restaurant, an offbeat store, a cool concert series, a gallery opening ... the best review a place could get from this lot was 'Well that was Cheap & Cheerful!' I loved the spirit of that! It wasn't about slumming in dives, but rather seeking out ways of experiencing the best LA had to offer - at the best price possible."
As a first pass, Cinnia has compiled 20-30 resources she recommends as Cheap & Cheerful. "But this is just a jumping off point," she adds. "The beauty of a blog is with the ability of posting comments, readers can expand to each category and create new categories, building an incredible resource for each other. I can't possibly check out all of Los Angeles, I have to rely on my readers."
Cinnia purposely built Cheap & Cheerful Los Angeles on Google's Blogger. By using an existing platform she was honoring the Cheap and Cheerful ethos of creating something of quality without major expense.
Discussions are currently underway for Cheap & Cheerful blogs for New York, Chicago, Boston, San Francisco New Orleans and Denver. "It's really about identifying people who grasp the Cheap & Cheerful sensibility and want to carry it forward."
