Festival of Frugality

Hello and welcome to the 304th edition of the Festival of Frugality! I am happy to be hosting this week and I hope you enjoy this edition’s entries as much as I did.

I hope you had a fun and safe Halloween. After years of not paying much attention to the holiday, Halloween quickly became a favorite again after having kids. My kids went as a witch and a bumblebee this year. Too much cuteness! I’m not biased at all. I was going to share a picture here but my computer and camera are having another fight, so I can’t. Instead, I’ll share them from last year as a kitty and a puppy :)

This week’s editor’s picks are as follows:

I know, lots of editors picks. Hate me.

  1. They look so, so cute! When my brother was the puppy’s age, he refused to dress up, but still wanted to go trick or treating. We eventually stuck a cowboy hat on him, but when people would ask him what he was for Halloween, he’d say, “I dunno. I’m just Joe.”

  2. Thanks for including my post along with all of the other great ones!

  3. Your style is really unique compared to other folks I have read stuff from.
    Thanks for posting when you’ve got the opportunity, Guess I’ll
    just bookmark this blog.

  4. The wedding dress can also be bought fairly cheaply from a department
    store or even made from a second-hand one if you know someone with sewing skills.
    Having said that, if you can find a way to put on a cheap wedding reception — one that’ll save some
    money yet still please the guests — well, you’ll be
    able to double if not triple your honeymoon vacation time.
    Choose a Victorian wedding theme set among gazebos and rose gardens with lots of
    lace and gilding.

  5. You can certainly see your enthusiasm within the work you write.

    The sector hopes for more passionate writers like you who aren’t afraid
    to say how they believe. All the time follow your heart.
