Frugal Friday: Posts That Ruled This Week, Thanksgiving is NEXT Week Edition!?
This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my disclosure page for more info.
It’s hard to believe that Thanksgiving is next week! This month just seems like it’s flown by and I don’t see it slowing down anytime soon, before you know it it’ll be Christmas. This has been another busy week in the Frugal Rules household. The week started remembering our dear son Isaac and then getting to celebrate my beautiful wife’s birthday on Wednesday. She and I get to go on an all too infrequent date night tonight as we go out for her birthday. Does anyone have any big plans for Thanksgiving? My family and I will be staying home and enjoying it with some close friends. We’re not big travelers for the Holidays having such a young family, but we’re looking forward to having some family visit over Christmas this year.
I’ve listed some of my favorite blog posts from the week, in no particular order. If you have the time, I highly recommend you read a few of them. Have a great weekend everyone!
