Ways I Save on Fashion and Shoes

You all know that I like to have a wardrobe full of the latest fashions and trends. But I am on a limited budget these days, so I’m not able to always buy a ton of items for each new season. Now I have to be much more selective about the pieces I choose to […]

Last Minute Christmas Shopping Anyone?

You all know that the end of the year gets crazy busy right?! I mean, it’s the busiest time of the year at my full-time job, plus it’s my first holiday season as a freelancer too so I just wasn’t sure what to expect this year. I have planned ahead for what I want to […]

Things I am Doing to Get Out of Debt

I’ve talked plenty on this blog about the things I do (or have done) that might make me a bad PF blogger, but the truth is there are things I’ve given up to help me lower my spending, stick to my budget, and pay off debt. Today I want to highlight a few things I’ve […]

Antiquing and Thrifting – Frugal Fun!

I don’t want to make myself sound like an old maid, but I’m going to let you in on one of my favorite “secret” sometimes frugal activities – I love to go antiquing and thrifting! Apparently, that’s just one of the many things Cat and I have in common. 🙂 Don’t know what that means? Don’t […]

Don’t Give Up on Becoming Debt Free

Today we are excited to have our first guest post from the amazing Kassandra from More Than Just Money. Take it away Kassandra! Are you fed up with being in debt? I know how that feels, but it took me a long time to do something about it. I spent most of my twenties and early […]

Crap, I accidentally budgeted.

Confession time: Steve and I are not cheap clothing shoppers. While we buy at least 80% of our stuff on sale or with a coupon, we are brand buyers. Second confession: Steve is way more frugal than I am and way better at finding deals but I’m trying desperately to get better at this myself. […]

Who wants to be a millionaire?

Not me, apparently. So I finally made it through the gruesome book, The Millionaire Next Door. While informative, it was so terribly boring that it took me weeks to get through it. Awful. However, I found one interesting tidbit about how much millionaires were spending on consumer goods. I am the nosiest person alive. I […]

How to Make Your Apartment Livable On the Cheap(ish)

Do you know what happens when you move across the country and only bring what will fit in a Ford Focus? You have to buy stuff to live. Well, you don’t have to — but I’m a big fan of not sleeping on the floor. As such, we’ve spent a decent chunk of cash on […]
