I am super excited to be hosting this week’s edition of Festival of Frugality. If you’re new to the Festival of Frugality, the purpose is to spotlight the excellent ideas that are floating around out there to help squeeze a few extra pennies, nickels, dimes, or quarters out of every dollar.
The definition of frugality: economical in use or expenditure; prudently saving or sparing; not wasteful.
We should all have a money saved for a rainy day (or days) because rainy days happen when you least expect it. Surprise expenses seem to creep up throughout the year.
