    Sometimes, it really pays off having non-frugal family members. We live in a 60 yr old house with the never ending upkeep that an old house requires. My sister bought a house to flip. Well, her flip house has these beautiful bedroom, pantry, and closet doors. She has decided to replace all of...

    So I went grocery shopping last night and one of the items on my list was chicken breasts. I bought the store brand which are significantly cheaper than Tyson. Anyway, DS was acting up and I was so focused on getting him home and into the house that I completely forgot that I'd shoved the bag...

    I was so happy a couple of weeks ago to get a brand new (pink!!) rotary cutter. I had a coupon for Joanns for 40% off and then another coupon for 10% off my entire purchase. I got my rotary cutter for a great price, I think. Well, I was using it today to cut out a tote bag and it slipped...

    This is one of the many things my mom does that drives me BATTY. My mom swears before me and my daughter came to live with her that her grocery bill was $160 a month. When I first moved in I did not have a job so she was paying for the groceries and she would complain because it would be $300...

    What is an unfrugal temptation that you resisted recently? Mine - I resisted the vending machine candy bar (one of my unfrugal weaknesses!) I was searching for the $ bill and then went :down:- and pulled out my baggie full of generic brand value size pretzels..and am munching to my hearts...

    Last week, I was so good. I stayed on my $30 grocery budget almost to the dollar. I was about 28 cents under. Then this week happened. :sigh: It was a super rough week for me, and I was in a sour mood when I hit the store. I have to tell you it has been MONTHS since I bought convenience foods...

    My sister and her husband went out of the country on a holiday and had my mom look after her four kids. It was only discovered 45min after they left that my niece was very ill. My sister had thought it was just the flu. My mom took her to the hospital - it was actually appendicitis. My niece...

    We have neighbors who are pretty unfrugal. They don't use things up until they are no longer useful. When they get tired of something, they just buy a new one. But luckily for us, they are frugal minded. They know we are frugal and love freebies, so they always check with us before they toss...

    What UNfrugal thing do you do that you refuse to give up or change? I was listening to a lady talk the other day at the store. She kept saying that in this economy that having a pet is a luxury...... I have to admit I have never thought about it this way. I got to thinking about how we all...

    My pet thing (pun intended) is donating to the ASPCA (The American Society for Prevention of cruelty to Animals). Okay, I donate the minimum $18.00 per month, but I love cats and dogs. :)

    I thought it might be fun to see how others "slip-up" now and then. I know I do it, and I am sure others have also. I wouldn't say its always a "bad" thing, what would be bad is if we let a slip-up stop us from jumping right back on the frugal train. I now I love this site for that...

    One of my neighbors stopped by yesterday. She and I share the frugal gene. Her sister decided to move, so she was packing up all of her stuff and she was throwing out 21 pairs of jeans, jean shorts and jean capri's. Some still have the tags on them! So my neighbor snatched them up before she...

    My poor portable dishwasher tanked. :grnwave: Goodbye dishwasher! It was one of the few things that I wanted to get away from, use less water handwashing dishes. But it was just so tempting and convenient sitting there calling my name when I had dirty dishes! So, I guess there is the...
