Festival of Frugality #23

The Festival of Frugality (23rd Edition) is now posted and ready for your viewing pleasure.

My Saving on Groceries blog entry got in (just in time!) for this week’s festival.

This week’s was *seriously* packed with good information. Not that it isn’t every week, but this week it seemed like I got something out of every single entry. My favorites though were Trivial Untruth & Make It- Don’t Waste It.

Trivial Untruth really resonated with me because I could really understand where she was coming from. How many times have I thought it was the cashier’s fault if they don’t ring up my purchases and blame them for my own dishonesty? Her point about what that teaches our children really struck home and I am going to try and be more conscious of that in my daily life. I am a Christian so you would think that this would be a no-brainer, but unfortunately it isn’t. We know I have issues with The Man because I can’t stand for The Man to take my money, but not when it is compromising my honesty & how I appear to my children. I am not going to beat myself up over it, but I am going to be more aware of it!

Make It- Don’t Waste It….well, what’s not to love? Finding new ways to reuse things in our homes is always a great thing with me. I have plenty of stuff to work with over here! I particularly loved her idea of saving the cookie crumbs for ice cream & pudding toppings.

Thanks to Boston Gal’s Open Wallet for hosting another amazing festival. I hope you guys can check out the entries.

Don’t forget to take our poll today too (if you haven’t already). I am inquiring on who has helped influence you the most in your management of money.
