Posts That Piqued My Interest

Not a big weekend on tap here in Penny Frugalista land. I’m hoping to go buy the moulding to finish off the upstairs room once and for all (it’s only been a year, folks — that’s what happens when you DIY) and get a flu shot today, which I’d put off from earlier in the week. Then we’re going to top off the day with Chinese takeout, our big food splurge for the week.

Hope everyone is having a good weekend!
