Hi there! We are the Frugasaurus team! A small family of frugal millennials from Norway. Our hobbies include reading, writing, saving for financial independence, doing good in the world, crafts, board games, cooking, hiking and many other things.
This blog will be about our journey to a more frugal and environmentally friendly lifestyle, where we are financially free to be our own boss. We are really excited that you’ve come to share this little spot of the internet with us. Without further ado, here are the members of our little tribe:
Professor Roar is our resident mascot and frugality expert. He graduated top of his class and holds a Ph.D. in Frugality from the Royal University of Dinotopia, and he wants to help his two humans achieve a true frugal lifestyle, financial freedom and happiness.
Mr. E. is the literary expert of the team and an avid reader and writer. He spends most of his days reading, writing or analysing books. When he doesn’t, he’s probably climbing a bouldering wall or hunting for good deals in the grocery shop.
He also has his own separate blog, where he writes reviews and general bibliophilic enthusiasm. He hopes to one day live off his writing in its entirety, so that the two humans and their dinosaur may one day retire to a quaint little home deep in the woods somewhere, with ample hiking, berry-picking and mountain possibilities.
Kristine is an geek with one true passion: the environment. With an M.Sc. in Environmental Chemistry, she thought earnestly that she could help change the world. After studying science for some time however, she quickly came to realise that all the research we need has already been published (some 30-40 years ago) and that current research is more like icing on the cake, or further underlining previous research if you will. What was needed was action.
This led Kristine to mostly eschew animal products, particularly industrialised agriculture, stop buying new clothes and avoiding plastic and disposables whenever she could. She also dreams of one day having a large forest garden where she can grow and preserve most of the food needed for the whole year in an awesome carbon neutral or carbon negative off-grid home.
Kristine can sometimes be seen on her other blog, talking about anything and everything not necessarily related to frugal living. Such as Phd life and sometimes writing.
