A Whole Lot of Frugal Going On

Today I have a Guest Post over at Frugal Living NW.  You have heard me mention this sight many times.  I love having a local deal blog that I can follow so I can save on all my grocery and household needs.

If you are coming over from Frugal Living NW, I thank you for stopping by.  First off you need to know I am not a deal blog.  Don’t  get me wrong, I love deals and on occasion I will post some deals because I hate for anyone to miss out on some great bargains, but that’s not what I am about, and why would I be when Angela does such a great job.

I did a Teaching Kids the Value of Money series a few months ago.  It will show you where the thought of having frugal kids will produce frugal adults came from.   I feel like this is such an important thing for us parents to teach our kids.  We don’t want our kids writing blogs in a few years about how they are trying to get out of debt.  Instead we want them writing the frugal blog or making money online blog.

You will see Money 4 This articles.  Which is things I enjoy and will spend money on, a splurge if you will.

Flavored Balsamic Vinegar and Olive Oils, I can’t get enough of these.
The Beer ‘n’ Burgers Event in Portland, which as a blast by the way.
Our Roller Coaster Vacation, that I took just days before my back surgery.  I wanted to get my money’s worth out of my back surgery.  🙂

You will also find Not 4 This articles, where I find things inexpensive or free.

I talk often about how much I love food.  Good, local, hearty, creative food.  I am always trying something, whether it be a recipe or a great local restaurant. Even though food is a splurge I am learning to cut costs with stockpiling.

As you can see there is a little bit of everything, but a whole lot of frugal, that’s for sure.   I always have been frugal and I always will be.  Quite frankly being frugal is a Thing I Love.
