New review site for frugal products

Posted April 7, 2010

I recently found out about, a new website that reviews products in the frugal price range (AKA - Faye's price range). The founder of the company, Max Levitte, sent the following in an e-mail:

"What we do at Cheapism is review the low price products and services in various categories and then create a thorough buying guide on how to buy budget products in that category. Our editorial process involves defining the low-price range for each category, identifying must have features, summarizing key performance attributes, and then analyzing relevant reviews and recommending the best budget buys and what to avoid. We follow strict journalistic editorial guidelines when creating our content and take great pride in our articles.

We also have a blog where we aggregate news stories related to frugality and the budget products universe, as well as additional tools and a comprehensive collection of resources that can help consumers save. "

They have also had some good national press:

"Consumer Reports’ Shop Smart magazine picked us as their “Site of the Week”, Time Magazine’s Money blog includes us in their favorite sites, Kiplinger said we help consumers “find quality goods at affordable prices” and WiseBread’s Nora Dunn write that Cheapism is “where cheap is chic”. According to Lifehacker we are a site that “helps you find the cheapest best buys" and CNBC’s Jane Wells said that consumers go to our site when diving into the “frugalsphere” to try and save when doing their holiday shopping."

Sounds like a great, FREE, frugal resource to me! I may be in the market for a new laser printer soon and their reviews have been quite helpful. I hope their information saves you a few $$ as well.
