This is my fifth week taking part in Frugal Friday. It is put on by Life as Mom. She wants us to share a tip a week about what keeps us staying in the Black. Since I missed last week, this is actually two week’s worth of shopping in one post.
Since I didn’t blog last week, I wanted to catch you up on the past two weeks of shopping.
