Gonna Start a New Blog

I've decided to start a new blog dedicated to crafting projects. I'll still follow a 'sorta frugal' lifestyle, but lately I notice I don't write much on that topic. I want a blog that is more clearly focused.

Meantime, one last little "Sorta Frugal" tip:

Save your $5 bills! Ones don't add up fast enough and tens and twenties are needed for life, like groceries and school supplies. But Fives, well...if you keep stuffing them into a piggy bank from now until Christmas you won't miss them. And won't you be surprised how much cash you'll have on hand for Christmas Shopping!

You just have to solemnly vow not to break into the piggy bank (or, in my case, a pink Owl) until at least mid-November. Not even to count how much you've saved so far!

See you at my new blog!

That is a really good tip! I always ask for fives with my cash back instead of tens or twenties. And they have been for our emergency cash fund. But it's true what you said. They add up fast and you don't reach for them like tens and twenties. I'll try that for Christmas too.

I can't wait to see what fun crafts you have on your new blog!
