Bringing back Frugal Friday!

I used to do posts on Southern Somedays for Frugal Fridays, but obviously since I have had trouble even posting regularly and my life has changed quite a bit since those days, I haven't kept up with that.  No better time that the New Year to bring back "Frugal Friday!"  Hopefully, that will encourage me to at least post regularly, not to mention help me keep my focus on living more simply and living more with less.

As 2017 is upon us, part of my New Year's commitment is to continue to grow in my financial knowledge.  I freely admit that I have been a complete and total flop with finances...but, I am learning, growing and improving! I have already been taking classes in personal finance and budgeting.  In 2017 I want to continue that trend and pay down debt and increase savings in any way possible.  Some of those steps are baby steps which may seem silly, but every step helps. 
Any one else planning a Frugalista Lifestyle for the New Year
and what is the 1st thing you are going to tackle?


  1. Me me! This is one of my BIG goals for 2017...simply learning to spend less and spend frugally. I'm really really hoping for a life change toward the end of 2017, which will most like have an impact on my finances, so I need to reign in my spending. I'm looking forward to keeping you with your Frugal Friday posts. Hopefully it will be inspiration and motivation for me.

    P.S. I always loved your book reviews too. ;) Happy New Year!

  2. I want to continue focusing on experiences over stuff. :-)

  3. I want to focus on my health. And I need to save more.


Thank you for stopping by...leave a little of your sparkle before you go!
