The Frugal Girl

Here’s a peek at what’s going on with me, my family, and our life. Date night! My husband and I had a planned date WEEK recently.

One thing that I didn’t want to do much of on our date week was COOK, but I didn’t want blow our budget.

I replaced a bathroom faucet. I walked into my kids’ bathroom and noticed that the faucet was steadily dripping. I did some googling, as one does when faced with a homeowner problem, and discovered that fixing a leaky faucet is quite do-able.
