February, 2020

It’s been a week. But I do have a colorful Snoopy.

The Frugal Girl

How We Frugal-ed in February 2020

WIS, WWA | I am complaining about the clouds

The Frugal Girl

Hello, frugal people! It’s been kind of dreary and rainy here, and I’m feeling a little bummed out from all the clouds. Here’s hoping for some sunshine soon! Zoe and I DID get to see our very plump friend at the cat rescue center, though, and she is kind of like sunshine.

The Frugal Girl

I fixed Zoe’s chokers. She bought a set that turned out to be terribly flimsy; they kept breaking after just a few wears. Luckily, I was able to get them back together with a pair of needlenose pliers. How long will the repair last? I dunno.
