Frugal Friday: Posts That Ruled This Week, Month End Extravaganza

It’s hard to believe that October is now over and we’re in November. It’s been a crazy week in the Frugal Rules household with our oldest son turning three and having family come visit. Being a business owner (more on this to come in the future, I promise) you look forward to having a few days off from the grind. I’m not complaining, but why does it seem like when we take time off, we get crazy amounts of work thrown our way?.

With it being month end, I am including some more blog posts. I’d love to say that I read them all, but with the week I’ve had I would be lying. I’ve read some, but many are from other bloggers I know that put out quality content. If you have the time, I encourage you to read a few of them over. Here they are, again in no particular order:
