AffordableSchoolsOnline.com debuted on the Web in 2007 as FrugalDad.com, at a time when frugality was less than popular. As the economy began its slow, Titanic-like upending, readers like you and national media began to take notice of FrugalDad.com and embraced what the site was all about.
What we have noticed is that our readers were largely worried about two things in the aftermath of the financial meltdown: their retirements and their kids’ educations. A lot of very smart people are out there offering retirement, investment and personal financial advice. We didn’t want to become just another voice in the crowd, so in late 2012 FrugalDad.com had decided to focus its subject matter more narrowly on issues of higher education and how to pay for it. With this change in subject matter to issues of higher education, we made the decision to make a domain name change from FrugalDad.com to AffordableSchoolsOnline.com. The change to AffordableSchoolsOnline.com was really a natural evolution for the site. We wanted it to make it easier for our readers to associate us with quality educational content. Although there are other sites that offer advice on the same types of topics, AffordableSchoolsOnline.com brings its own unique voice to the conversation – a voice that has been featured and profiled in the national media ever since it appeared on the scene.
Loyal readers like you have helped us make the decision to be more targeted in our content. We hope you’ll let us know what you think and that you’ll continue to find AffordableSchoolsOnline.com as helpful as it’s always been.
About Jason (Frugal Dad)
Jason, the founder of AffordableSchoolsOnline.com, had the foresight to understand that people can’t continue to live beyond their means without unpleasant financial consequences. Jason’s wisdom became apparent several months after the site launched when the world economy saw its worst downturn in a century – due largely to overextended and under-secured credit.
In January 2023, Simplfi.media bought AffordableSchoolsOnline.com to revive the Frugal Dad conversation.
