Like most people now days, the price of gas and utilities has eaten away at my pocket book yet my income hasn't changed one iota! But then I am pretty lucky to even have a job since my employer has sold off parts of their company. On top of that I am disabled and just waiting for the point where I won't be able to work at all. So I'm here to learn to be as frugal as possible. I currently rent, love to shop thrift stores and rummage sales and enjoy crafts.
