DIY Success

( Deals andFrugality )

photo credit: wayneandwax Unless the people in my previous post, Mr. Savvy and I generally have great success with our DIY projects.  Case in point, for the last few weeks, there has been a strong gas smell when we use the oven.  I finally decided to call the gas company, sooner rather than later, as […]

Summer Spending

Summer is right around the corner and with it comes my annual quest for summer clothes/shoes.  I have yet to figure out why I never seem to have enough summer clothes.   I haven’t done much shopping yet.  The little I did do was compliments of a Macy’s one day sale + coupon + gift card […]
