Meet a Reader | Julie, from Colorado

The Frugal Girl

After Julie saw that last week’s interview with Dorinda was the last one in my queue, she wrote to say she’d love to participate. So, funny enough, we are meeting two Colorado readers in a row! Tell us a little about yourself.

WIS, WWA | Black Friday edition

The Frugal Girl

As usual, I am happily spending my Black Friday at my house and not at the stores. It’s not a moral high-ground thing for me…I just don’t enjoy Black Friday shopping ( here’s why ).

5 Budget Winter Destinations

Shereen Travels Cheap

It's not even winter yet, but I can feel the winter blahs coming. The cold, rainy weather has arrived in Portland and I'm already over wearing a coat, considering it's usually windy as well, so your hood doesn't even stay up well.

My medical memoir list + tiny reviews

The Frugal Girl

As you probably already know, I have been on a serious medical memoir/medical non-fiction bender since early 2021. I adore memoirs, and I am interested in medical topics, so the combo of these two things? PERFECT. <chef’s

Holiday Travel Gift List 2021

Shereen Travels Cheap

Travel is coming back, y'all! I'm excited, but still cautious and know it's never going to be the same as it was, but many of us also remember when 9/11 happened and also when they stopped allowing smoking on planes and travel changed forever. It's fine.

Meet a Colorado Reader | Dorinda

The Frugal Girl

Dorinda is a girl after my own heart…she sent lots of photos in with her interview answers. I love it! Tell us a little about yourself. I’m Dorinda. I grew up on a wheat and beef farm in Kansas, spent seven years in north Dallas, and now reside in Colorado with my husband Greg (Mr.

WIS, WWA | A less receipt-ful week

The Frugal Girl

What I Spent. Well, I have a simpler report than last week (admittedly, that’s a low standard. I had so many receipts last week! ). This week, I spent: $24 at Giant. $64 64 at Weis. $20 20 at Target. $18 18 on fast food (see Wednesday night). $6 6 at Safeway. November Grocery Spending.

Thankful Thursday | I come by this honestly

The Frugal Girl

This week, I’m thankful: for potholders from my aunt. My aunt has been busy using up fabric scraps by making potholders, and she’s sent some along with Lisey the last few times she’s come home to visit.

Thankful Thursday | with sequins

The Frugal Girl

This week, I’m thankful: for the sequinned notebook that Lisey got me. She was ordering one for herself (to take to aviation mechanic classes. As one does.) and she added one to the cart for me. So now I proudly take it to my A&P classes. ??. that I can do anatomy and physiology in person.

My neighborhood: good or bad?

The Frugal Girl

Today, I’m going to start out by telling you all the lovely things about my neighborhood. The neighborhood I live in borders a river. This land was originally home to summer cottages, and now it’s an eclectic mix of smaller houses with lots of newer, beautiful homes on the waterfront.

Four Frugal Things (and a fail!)

The Frugal Girl

I submitted an $80 contact lens rebate. This is always an annoying process since you have to upload photos of your receipt + all the UPCs from each box. But for $80, I’m willing to spend a few minutes.

Hyperemesis | Advice for pregnant women and those who love them

The Frugal Girl

Every now and then, I mention my rough pregnancies in passing, and usually when I do, readers have some questions about hyperemesis (which is extended and extra-terrible morning sickness). The full name is hyperemesis gravidarum, often abbreviated HG.

WIS, WWA | Do you think we’ve over-complicated dinner?

The Frugal Girl

In Laura Ingalls Wilder’s book, Little House in the Big Woods, she describes a visit to her grandparents’ house, where she and her family share a meal with the grandparents plus some uncles and aunts.

Book Nook: An Extra Dose of Love

Motherhood Moments

I recently had a chance to interview children’s book author Muriel Fitzpatrick who has published “ An Extra Dose of Love.” In the book, Santa’s elves rush to save Christmas as readers learn about the spirit of giving and how this timeless message can be used any time of the year. Throughout the beautifully illustrated pages, readers will follow along as the resourceful elves use technology and a positive attitude to locate a missing toy from Santa’s sleigh.

Five Frugal Things | an uninspired edition

The Frugal Girl

Some weeks, I have a running list of interesting frugal things I’ve done (such as trash-picking a cool glass vase ). On such weeks, I have lots to choose from when I sit down to write this post. But this week, I don’t think I have done any particularly interesting frugal things.

5 recent purchases that I love

The Frugal Girl

As a frugal blogger, I tend to write about how I avoid buying things. But I do think that there are legitimate reasons to purchase things. I think that if a purchase is useful or particularly joy-inducing, that’s a good reason to drop a few dollars.

A Thanksgiving Day thankful list!

The Frugal Girl

Happy Thanksgiving to all my American readers! Thanksgiving is always on a Thursday for us, so that works out quite nicely. American or not, you can do the usual: make a thankful list with me. ??. This week, I’m thankful: that Zoe’s got her learner’s permit.

Where I found money in February

Family Balance Sheet

Finding extra money has become a game for me. Over the years, I have found money through rebates, refunds, online sales, and even the ground. Yep, I found a $20 bill on a morning run at the beach! I have used the extra money to pay off debt, fund family trips, or build up our Christmas savings.

Meet a Reader | Texas Rachel

Hello, everyone! Today, we’re meeting Rachel. She’s been reading here since 2009, but she’s actually never left a comment. She’s making up for it today, though!

Q&A | Do I regret my life path? Would I choose it again?

The Frugal Girl

A letter from a reader: Maybe this is too personal of a topic for you to address in your blog but I’m curious about your thoughts on what is preferable: Having a family before receiving an education/degree as you did. Focusing on education/degree prior to embarking on marriage/family.

Consumer Critique: Buddy Biscuits Trainers Training Bites Bacon Flavor

Motherhood Moments

My dog loves that I get to review so many kinds of dog treats - and so does her puppy BFF (my parents' retriever). The latest one I got to review was a package of Buddy Biscuits Trainers Training Bites Bacon Flavor. We've been working on a lot of different tricks with our highly food-motivated dog.

My thoughts on LuLaRich (and MLMs as a whole)

The Frugal Girl

Recently, Mr. FG and I, along with much of America (!) watched Amazon’s LuLaRich documentary. And after I watched it, I got the itch to talk about it with other people, kind of like you would at a book club. (I I get that itch to discuss whenever I read a good book too.

Meet A Curious Reader from Hong Kong

The Frugal Girl

Today’s interviewee goes by “A Curious Reader” in the comment section, and she asked if she could keep that moniker for her post. And of course, I said yes, because everyone who participates in this series has their own internet privacy comfort level, and I want to respect that.

Thankful Thursday | I feel rich! (in data)

The Frugal Girl

This week, I am thankful: for Mint Mobile. I am seriously reveling in having so much cellular data available each month. I feel positively rich in data! Even though it feels to me like I am using SO MUCH DATA, I am barely scratching the surface of the 4 gigs I get each month.

Meet a Reader | Susannah

The Frugal Girl

Susannah first volunteered for this series in March, but it took her a while to send her answers and photos back because…she got a puppy! And as it turns out, puppies are indeed a lot of work. ??. Tell us a little about yourself. I’m Susannah.

Five Frugal Things | I went to Goodwill!

The Frugal Girl

I haven’t been to Goodwill in such a long time, but Zoe and her friend wanted to go thrifting, and neither of them can drive yet. So, that meant I went thrifting too! Thus, most of my Five Frugal Things this week will be Goodwill-related. I found some lidless Pyrex containers.

WIS, WWA | Back up to four

The Frugal Girl

Hello, hello, everyone! Mr. FG came back into town last weekend, so we were back up to four diners at the table this week. What I Spent. I spent: $46 at Giant. $30 30 at Harris Teeter. $11 11 at Noodles and Company. $16 16 on takeout for Sonia and Zoe on Wednesday.

Five Frugal Things | Does this make sense? No.

The Frugal Girl

We’re kicking off this week’s round of Five Frugal Things with me doing something not-so-sensible: 1. I bought some boxes of bruised apples. Does it make sense to buy apples for homemade applesauce when I am currently having trouble cooking dinner ? Did I do it anyway? Do I regret it?

WIS, WWA | My cooking reset

The Frugal Girl

First, a big ol’ thank you to all of you for your kind and gracious comments on the post where I shared how I’ve been struggling in the cooking arena since my anatomy and physiology class started. A lot of you accurately saw what was going on.

Thankful Thursday | This is when you get stronger

The Frugal Girl

You know how when you are exercising, there’s a point where you feel like you really cannot possibly keep going for a moment more? And you know how often turns out that you actually can do a little bit more?

Thankful Thursday | my letters reappeared!

The Frugal Girl

This week, I am thankful: that Mr. FG replaced my keyboard letters. He and I had the same computer keyboard, but somehow, I’d managed to rub off the letter markings on a bunch of my keys and he had not.

Five Frugal Things | A bit of trash-picking

The Frugal Girl

I trash-picked a pitcher/vase for Sonia. When Mr. FG and I were out for our walk on trash/recycling day, I spied an interesting piece of glassware that someone had set out to be recycled. I knew Sonia would love it, so I picked it up and brought it home. And she does indeed love it!
