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 [...]

Well That Was a Crazy Month!

Well That Was a Crazy Month!

I don’t even know where to start, the past month has been crazy with trips, time with both sides of our family, Little Dude moving back in with us again, and as of this morning Cameron headed out to Mexico to help install a water pump in a remote village. So, it’s just me and [...]

Random Post!

Have you ever heard of the book The Way They Learn?* Well if you haven’t, it’s a super interesting read. I bring it up to say that when I took the quiz I was strongly random (as opposed to sequential), which I think is why I like doing unplanned random posts so much. Right now [...]

Second Hand Clothes

Second Hand Clothes

I love seeing other people’s frugal second-hand purchases, so I thought I’d share some of my recent finds. We were looking for a jacket for Little Dude at a consignment shop and found this one brand new with tags still on it for just $2! It’s funny how buying used, isn’t always used. I’ve gotten [...]
