Two abandoned-house nightstand rehabs

The Frugal Girl

When my dad and I picked up a load of furniture from the abandoned house, we grabbed two matching nightstands (not pictured below!) Recognize the base of my dining table? I didn’t really have a specific plan for the nightstands, but you know…a wonderfully freeing thing about starting over with very few possessions is that you can take on a, “Sure, I’ll take it!

Thankful Thursday | the heat can leave, please

The Frugal Girl

This morning I was thinking about how thankful I am to live in a place where this hot and humid weather is a temporary experience, not a year-round or most-of-the-year experience. I’m sweaty, but at least I know some cooler air is coming eventually! This week, I am thankful: for a little flower/card drop off Reader Kim lives in my area, and she kindly dropped off flowers and a little encouraging card on my front bench this week. that I’m more on top of my game this week Now that the

Randomness for Labor Day

The Frugal Girl

I was busy yesterday getting a whole big post done, showing you what I did with these two nightstands. (Spoiler alert: I didn’t paint either of them white. Are you proud??) Anyway, I remembered that today is Labor Day, which means that a lot of you will not be reading blog posts. Soooo, I decided to wait until Wednesday to share that post, when you all are back in your regular routines.

Anyway…I needed some litter and food for Shelley and Chiquita, and Chewy’s prices for those beat the brick and mortar stores around here. So, I placed an order there but logged into TopCashback first, and now I’m getting $4.48 back on my purchase.

WIS, WWA | all Safeway

The Frugal Girl

What I Spent So I went to pull together my grocery spending for the week and I realized that it’s all quick trips to Safeway. This is better than endless nights of eating out, but definitely not as frugal as an organized trip to Aldi. I spent $63 at Safeway, spread out between an embarrassing number of trips. And I spent $20 at Chick Fil A for our final Pride and Prejudice viewing night. ?
