A Note on the Name Change

First, let me start off by saying a big THANK YOU to all of you who have supported my blog. It honestly means so much to me.

I want to let you know why I changed the name of my blog. It has recently come to my attention that last year someone trademarked the word "Frugalista" and has been attempting to enforce that trademark. While I do not agree with the validity of the trademark given that Frugalista is a common word that was used long before she attempted to trademark it, there is currently still a live trademark on file and I do not want to infringe on that trademark.

Therefore, I have changed the name of my site to "The DC Frugal Girl" and the new website is and Twitter is now @DCFrugalGirl. Although the name has changed, this is still the same great money saving frugal blog. If you followed me on Google Friend Connect, you are still following and if you followed me on Facebook please check to see if the likes continued. Some had to be removed so I could change the name, so please please please re-like my page if you were one of the random names that I had to remove so I could get the number under 100 to change the name (It pained me to have to remove anyone and I greatly appreciate your support, I chose the names at random so please don't take it personally and I hope you will re-like my page).

Also, if you have "grabbed" my badge or linked to my page, please update it with the new link and grab the new badge on my side bar. Those of you who I know have me listed on their blog roll, I will be emailing you directly with the new info.

Everyone, thank you again for your support and I promise there are great frugal ideas to come!
