Best Zipcar Alternatives for Transportation

The Budget Diet

Not everyone owns a car. Even if you have a driver’s license, owning a car can be quite cost prohibitive. First, you have to buy a car, which can cost upwards of $20,000. Then there’s license and registration fees. There’s the high cost of insurance. There’s gas and regular maintenance.

Being frugal by choice rather than necessity is way more fun.

The Frugal Girl

A few thoughts on turning 40

The Frugal Girl

Delayed a bit, since I turned 40 at the end of April. But then again, I was a little busy on the weekend of my birthday. Just FYI: this post is going to have nothing to do with frugality and a whole lot more to do with navel-gazing. Because this is my blog and I will navel-gaze if I want to!).
