Frugal Friday: Blog Posts That Ruled This Week, How is it March Edition
Welcome to another Frugal Friday! Last week I wrote about the snow “event” they were calling for. This week, I am thankful to report that most of the snow missed us. We did get 8 inches of snow last Friday morning, but not the 18 they were calling for. They had also been calling for another major snow “event” earlier this week and that thankfully stayed further south of us and we got nothing but flurries. After seeing the pictures of what they received in parts of Oklahoma and Texas, I am glad we did not get any of it as some areas got upwards of two feet. On the blogging front I was excited to get my hosting over to Andrea at Nuts and Bolts and am already seeing considerable differences between her and my previous host. This just makes me more excited to see what she comes up with in terms of the blog redesign that’ll happen later in the year.
It’s hard to believe that it is March already. It seems like yesterday that it was just the start of 2013, and now we’re staring down the start of spring. That means the beginning of our gardening is just around the corner which is always fun and the kids love it too. It’s a great way to teach them where our food comes from, so they don’t become deluded thinking apples grow in boxes on shelves at WalMart.
It has been another great week in the blogosphere and there have been some great blog posts this week. Listed below are some of my favorite, in no particular order. If you have the time this weekend then I encourage you to check out some of the blog posts and the blogs as a whole.
