Five Frugal Things | Vintage fashion modification, for one

The Frugal Girl

I modified a vintage top for Sonia. She had a green silk long-sleeved top (kindly given to her) that had a lot of irreparable damage in the armhole area, along with several previous repairs. I suggested that we just give up on the sleeves and make it a sleeveless shirt instead.

What I Spent, What We Ate | Next one will be September!

The Frugal Girl

I am definitely ready for some slightly cooler weather, but I’m also a little sad that our summer break is coming to an end. But, it’s going to end no matter how I feel about it, so I’m going to focus on the fact that I am getting pretty tired of hot and humid weather.

Our second Ohio trip, in photos

The Frugal Girl

86 degrees in my house? Ohhhhh, no.

The Frugal Girl

Recently, I read about a blogger who sets his thermostat at 86 degrees during the summer and I’m not gonna lie: I was kind of horrified at the thought. I am an unabashed air-conditioning lover and I am frequently grateful that I was born after this blessed invention.

WIS, WWA | I did not blow my budget at Costco. (!)

The Frugal Girl

What I Spent. I made it out to Costco, where I spent $45. Then I spent $73 at Aldi plus one other regular grocery store, and $16 at the produce stand. So, amazingly enough, I went to Costco and did not have an over-budget week. WHAT EVEN IS THIS???? I’m at $134 for the week. August Spending.

DIY 3 Ingredient Strawberry Pancake Syrup

The Frugal Girl

A version of this recipe has been on my blog for several years, but it’s waaay back in the archives. And it was sharing a post with the orange julius recipe , which made it sort of inconvenient to just look up the strawberry syrup recipe. (I I discovered this when I went to look it up myself!).
