I don’t know if you all realize this about me, but I do love my wine. In the past few years, I’ve come to develop an appreciation for it, and my girlfriends and female family members have all started to love trying out new and interesting varieties. I have to say, it’s pretty cool to have cousins and aunts bring over a new favorite wine to share. Of course, being a frugal maven, I hate spending an insane amount on wine.
Luckily, there are great wines out there that don’t break the bank and are still delicious. Lately, FlipFlop wines has been our go-to wine. At around 7 dollars a pop, you really can’t go wrong. Plus, I’ve been on a Moscato kick, and their version is fantastic. Also, I love wineries that not only make great inexpensive wines, but do it for a cause or charity.
FlipFlop wines is partnering with Soles4Souls, a charity that “collects new shoes to give relief to the victims of abject suffering and collects used shoes to support micro-business efforts to eradicate poverty.” How great is that? As frugalites, we are always looking for a way to give without have to create a big dent in our budget. The Flippin Good! deeds challenge is something that we all should jump on. You can check out the challenge page and get started with your own family members and friends. I had the advantage to be part of a twitter party with FlipFlop wines, and once I learned about this challenge, I vowed to blog about it and get the word out.
I’d love to know if any of you plan to give this challenge a shot. I’ll be starting it this weekend with family members, so we can be supporters for each other. And also, have any of you tried FlipFlop wines? What is your favorite frugal winery?
