Five Frugal Things | a mailbox flag refresh

The Frugal Girl

This first one is making me unreasonably happy. ??. I spray-painted my mailbox flag. The mailbox here at my rental is past the flower of its youth, and the flag in particular was showing the mailbox’s age. I looked at it one day and thought, “Hmm, it would be sweet if I could paint that.”
