Welcome back to another Frugal Friday. As you can tell from the post title, I got hit with something this week the day after my birthday and it was not fun! I do not know if it was the flu or not, but suffice it to say I am glad to be on the mend. The fun thing this week was getting a home brewing kit from Mrs. Frugal Rules for my birthday. I’ve wanted to home brew beer for a while now, but never wanted to spend the money on it myself. It looks like a pretty sweet kit and am excited to get started on brewing my first batch of beer. I don’t know how frugal brewing your own beer is, but I’ll definitely be looking for ways to be frugal. As a result, you’ll probably be seeing a post or two about how to save money on home brewing here in the not too distant future.
As I was sick, I did not get as much chance to read as many blog posts as I normally do, but the ones I did were good as always. If you have the time this weekend, I encourage you to check out some of these great blog posts.
