Editorial Policies

The Frugal Expat was founded in 2020 with the primary aim of guiding others toward financial prosperity by learning about frugal tips, investing well, and saving more money.

Our goal is to educate our viewers by providing valuable news and information. Whether you’re trying to manage your finances better or finding the best place to travel to, you’ve come to the right place.
