December, 2019

“Are you ready for Christmas?”

The Frugal Girl

People keep asking me that question when I’m out and about. And I’m sorry to say that as of this moment, the answer is no. And I thought that if you are in the same boat, you might be encouraged to see where I’m at. I have presents purchased, but exactly ZERO of them are wrapped.

A few thoughts on joy

The Frugal Girl

December is a time of year that promises joy. Joy from family, joy from traditions, joy from peace, joy from gifts. And of course, joy from spending. The problem with a lot of our sources of joy is that they are outside our control and so sometimes, they do not deliver.
