Five Frugal Things | plus a fail

The Frugal Girl

Scroll down for the fail. We’re starting with wins first! I mended an armpit hole. This is an American Giant item; it’s basically a hooded heavy-duty t-shirt and last time I took it off, I noticed it had sprung a hole in the underarm.

Meet a Frugal Girl reader | Kristin from Going Country

The Frugal Girl

This year, I wanted to add in a feature that I think will be fun for all of you. You all hear from me a LOT, since, uh, I’m the only one who writes here, officially. Well, hi! It’s me! Writer of many words! But I am most certainly not the only frugal soul who hangs out around here.

Sonia’s bookshelf | Before and After

The Frugal Girl

Unlike me, Sonia is a person who loves to own books. I like to read books and then get rid of them, which is why the library is my favorite thing. You can read books without storing them! On the rare occasion when I need to buy a book, I almost always immediately resell it on eBay.

stream of consciousness | a pm edition

The Frugal Girl

Using up my Stitch Fix credits | more in the saga!

The Frugal Girl

In case you’re new: I tried out Stitch Fix for a while, using their “the cheaper, the better” option. While I did get a few good pieces, Stitch Fix has routinely struggled to send me things that are very sensibly priced and/or that I even like.
