I just wanted to give a shout out to all the kind hosts of the Festival of Frugality over the past few years. Without the hard work of all these hosts, the Festival wouldn’t be as popular as it is today. I don’t write much about the Festival on BFP much anymore but that doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate you all. In fact, you might have thought Blueprint for Financial Prosperity hosted the Festival the most out of any host – you’d be wrong. In fact, BFP has hosted it at least twice as few times as the #1 host (that’s right, BFP has hosted it only 5 times)
Ten Time Host
One person who deserve special mention is Dawn of Frugal For Life. Dawn has hosted the Festival a staggering ten times and, I’ve said on multiple occasions, someone I would consider synonymous with frugal blogging. If you’re a fan of frugality and you don’t know about Frugal for Life, you’re missing out on who many consider the Queen of Frugal Blogging. Oh yeah, she’s on schedule for an 11th hosting on May 6th too! For a complete list of all the Festivals she’s hosted, I published the full list as of the 108th Festival. Thank you so much!
Four Time Hosts
Four hosts have hosted it an equally impressive four times: Free Money Finance, Mighty Bargain Hunter, Lazy Man and Money and No Credit Needed. Hosting it once is hard enough, these gentlemen have done it four times. In fact, Mighty Bargain Hunter hosted the 2nd Festival of Frugality and Free Money Finance hosted the 3rd Festival of Frugality (Lazy Man joined in on the 46th and NCN hopped on board with the 47th) They have truly helped it become one of the premier carnivals in the pfblogosphere.
Three Time Hosts
Only one site can claim to be a three time host of the Festival of Frugality and that is FIRE Finance. Thank you so much for hosting so many carnivals.

Managing & Guest Editors
In the years that the Festival has been running, I’ve had several editors manage the Festival in my absence and I wanted to thank two former editors and the current managing editor. Mapgirl of Mapgirl’s Fiscal Challenge and Pinyo of Moolanomy both did wonderful jobs keeping the ship afloat while I was away and the current managing editor, PaidTwice of I’ve Paid For This Twice Already…, a name that rivals my own in length, is doing a great job today.
Thank you again everyone for your contributions! (and if I have any inaccuracies, please do let me know via email or in the comments, I tried to get it right!)
