Festival of Frugality #37

Yesterday's festival was hosted at Blogging Away Debt. Here is what I liked.

Get Cheap Food at the Farmers Market. I don't agree that farmers markets are necessarily cheaper. I don't find that to be true here, but I do like what they suggest about going at the end of the day to get your produce cheaper. As a matter of fact a friend at church showed up with a box of bananas on Sunday and told everyone to help themselves. They had gone to the flea market and at the end of the day and purchased a whole case of bananas for $4.

Young and Broke shares some good tips she recently read about frugal cooking. I especially like the one about spices. In fact I was considering posting on that subject this Friday.

No Credit Needed tells you how you can get free shipping boxes from eBay and the post office.

Hope you find some good frugal information!


  1. Thank you for linking to the festival :)

  2. I think we have a farmer's market around here, but I can never find it. I've been to them in other states, though, and they're fun!
    Thanks for visiting my blog! I've never made a rag rug, though. It's something you crochet out of strips of fabric, right?
