When I polled my readers about what topics they liked me to post on, Frugal Fridays were one of the most requested. With that in mind, I thought it might be nice to have a place where these posts were all laid out in a list, so you don't have to scroll through to find the one you want.
Everything in these posts is stuff that I do, sometimes because I'm broke, but usually because I believe that if I save money one place then it's available for something else--like giving to charity or using for awesome family vacations. If you ever have questions about any of these topics, please feel free to ask and I'll try to elaborate!
If there is a topic I don't have here that you are interested in, by all means, leave a comment and I'll start writing!!
