15 Cheap/Free Ideas to Make You Feel Happier

The Frugal Girl

Inside of yesterday’s post about dealing with financial discouragement , I started to make a list of these, and I realized it would better to do that in a stand-alone post. There are plenty of ways to lift your spirits if money is no object (massage! dinner out! a vacation! shopping!).

Tuesday Tip | Boil your stinky kitchen washcloths

The Frugal Girl

Hat tip to my friend Stacy for this idea! You know how your kitchen washcloths get a funky stink over time, even if you are a responsible washcloth user? I’m super faithful about using a fresh one every single morning. I rinse mine out and hang them over the oven handle to dry overnight.

It’s not the stuff that creates good memories

The Frugal Girl

The other day, my mom forwarded me a link to the listing for my grandparents’ house, which is now for sale. You may remember that my grandpa died last year, and I went to South Dakota to see my beloved childhood place one more time.).

The best thing to remember when you feel like life is unfair

The Frugal Girl

Maybe it’s not THE best thing, but it’s a good thing to remember. Everyone who lives on this planet is subject to unfair, unpleasant things. Some more than others, to be sure, but all of us experience some difficulties in life that aren’t really our fault.

My bucket list did not go well this year.

The Frugal Girl

Every year, I publish a list of the things I want to do before summer “kicks the bucket” My list is a mix of practical and fun things because I want my summer to be a mix of those two. For the first time since I started making these lists, I got no painting projects done! WHO EVEN AM I?

What I Spent, What We Ate | NC/SC readers, I hope you’re safe!

The Frugal Girl

Readers in the path of Florence, I hope that you are all safe and dry. We’ve loved visiting North and South Carolina beaches over the years, and it makes me sad to see what the storm is doing. And I can imagine how much more sadness there is when you live in those areas.

Tuesday Tip | Think about what you CAN do instead of what you can’t do.

The Frugal Girl

Your best efforts to cheerfully live on less can be quickly derailed if you think about what you can’t do on your current budget. I can’t send my kids to that camp. I can’t go on a tropical vacation. I can’t get takeout. I can’t remodel my bathroom. I can’t get a gym membership. I can’t buy new clothes. I can’t get a new car. Those things may all be true, but that’s not a very productive train of thought.
