Welcome to the Festival of Frugality! It’s been a hectic week juggling my activities. I’m starting another side job to bring some extra income as we work on buying the house. The Festival’s theme is juggling to reflect what I’ve been doing.

You can juggle anything, just focus on what's important to you.

Frugal Food

Being frugal with you food doesn’t mean being cheap. In fact, I noticed frugal people tend to care more about food and getting the best value, not just the best price.


Do you have to spend money to save money? Where does tipping end? Are you allowed to splurge if you’re frugal? Find the answers to these questions juggling


These posts didn’t fit a specific topic, but you’ll some useful information.
