West Africa, Here We Come!!!

5 Frugal Things – Happy 4th!

I was this close (imagine my fingers just 1/2 inch apart) to grabbing a fast food meal this week…actually multiple times this week. But each time I managed to avoid it by the skin of my teeth telling myself it’d be cheaper and healthier to eat at home. One of the times it was actually [...]

Took another box of things to the consignment store. Our last box, plus one thing that was too big for the box, has earned us about $40! I’m sure this one won’t be as much, but I’m still excited to see how much we get. I cleaned out my fridge. I feel like this is [...]

I meant to make this post Friday, but didn’t get around to it, sorry it’s a little late. You know what I like about these kinds of posts? As I think of what things I’ll choose to share about, it reminds me that spending less money is not always something big and huge, but those [...]
