Frugality and Families: Festival and Carnival Picks

This week, for the first time, I submitted a post to the Carnival of Family Life. I felt my story about the fine line between frugality and obsession fit the idea behind the carnival, and it was included in this week’s edition at Mother Approves Blog. A few other entries that caught my eye were:

  • Parents! Beware of these 7 False Economies posted at LittleMummy.Com. There are places you can save money and cut costs, and there are some that just aren’t worth it. I didn’t necessarily agree with every single one, but I agree with the idea. Know when it is best to pay full price.

I also participated in the Festival of Frugality which went live yesterday at No Credit Needed. My post Alternative Renewable Income – Selling Your Stuff was included, along with these other posts that grabbed my attention:

  • Mrs. Micah explains how to shop from home – use stuff you already have!
  • Opinion Mom says simply drink water! I love water. I also love milk. I drink too much milk.

Be sure to check out both the Carnival and the Festival and find your own favorite reads!

  1. Thanks for the link!

    I love milk, too. I drink only water and skim milk! Our work has free Nantucket Nectars OJ, but that counts for calories, not $.

  2. Thanks for the link, I look forward to reading some of your future entries.

    Remember, milk is pretty expensive these days… :-)
