Teresa Mears is a publisher, writer and editor who was raised to be frugal. She was downsized last summer after nearly 30 years as an editor at newspapers ranging in size from the Portland (Tenn.) Leader to The Los Angeles Times and The Miami Herald, where she worked most recently. She moved to Florida in 1980 because it was the only place she could get a job during that recession and has lived in South Florida since 1985, in Miami, Hollywood and Fort Pierce. She also has lived on Florida’s Gulf Coast, in St. Petersburg and Inverness.

Fort Lauderdale on the Cheap is  part of the Living on the Cheap network. New cities are being added every day.

I post the deals as I find them. But you know the drill: Prices and promotions are subject to change at any time and without notice. If you think something sounds too good to be true, check with the merchant before you head out.
