An Unusual Hobby?

As I was driving my son to the airport today, we were discussing something around saving money. He said to me, "Mom I think one of your hobbies is saving money". I hadn't really stopped to think about it but you know he's right. I guess I got into the habit of trying to save money wherever I could years ago when I had no choice, I had to save wherever I could so we could afford things. Now, I don't have to save quite as much as I used to but you know now I want to save money. I love to go to Goodwill and hunt for great bargains. There's nothing better than finding a brand name clothing article for $5.87. Seriously, it doesn't get any better than that!!!

I've found several blogs that are based on saving money. I wanted to share one I found recently that I love, Fantabulously Frugal. One of today's sales is on clearance items at I'd been looking to purchase personalized notecards but didn't want to spend a lot for something that someone will read and toss in the trash. I was able to purchase 25 notecards for $5.46 and free shipping. This is one of the blogs I read every day. I can't wait to see what tomorrow's bargains may be.
Thanks, Lisa!


  1. Good for you on saving money..I need to get better about that. My friend turned me on to Cheapskate monthly years ago. I enjoyed it then, all though I have not read her articles for years.
    I LOVe the goodwill and have found the best stuff their. I have got some great deals over the years. My best find was a GAP wool coat for my son when he was was brand new and only 1.50!!

  2. wow!!! I stopped by your blog because we are both in the "Chocolate with Francois" group. I love the fact that you shop at Goodwill. I love the place. I've gotten unbelievable items. Thanks for sharing.
