Festival of Frugality – 162nd Edition
Welcome to the 162nd Edition of the Festival of Frugality. For those of you who may not be familiar with the Festival of Frugality, it’s a blog carnival that spotlights all of the excellent ideas floating around the blogosphere that help squeeze a few extra pennies, nickels, dimes, or quarters out of every dollar.
I’m your host Glblguy (also called Gibble) and I’m the founder of Gather Little by Little. If you’re new here, thanks for visiting and I’m really glad to have you. If you’ve been here before, welcome back!
This weeks carnival had 84 article submissions of which 64 awesome frugal articles are included below. While it may take you a while to read them all, it will be time well spent. Trust me, I read each and every one of them (all in one night I might add).
