Fantastic Frugal Fridays - Link Up Your Frugal Posts 12/24

I would like to welcome you to the Fantastic Frugal Fridays blog party.

The Fantastic Frugal Fridays blog party is hosted by JR from Frugality Is Free and me (Bridget) here at Being Frugal and Making it Work, and we are both very excited to invite all of you to share your frugal adventures with us.

It is always great to know a little about the hostesses at any party, so here is a bit about us.

JR and I are two frugal stay-at-home moms, and we both manage our household budgets with a very frugal hand. Being frugal moms does not mean that our families live without though, as we spoil our kids and sometimes our husbands rotten on Christmas and birthdays.

We both earn our own spending money by writing about our frugal lifestyles, and through various online earning sites. Every year we also treat our families to a frugal vacation on us....and our frugal budgets. JR's favorite place to take her three wonderful sons and husband is the Florida Keys, while I take my two kids and husband to the Oregon coast.

JR lives in urban South Florida, and I live in rural North Idaho, but frugality has brought us together, and I hope that the Fantastic Frugal Fridays will be a place, where you too will meet and connect with other frugal-minded friends.



Each week we will feature a Frugal Expert, this week's Frugal Expert is:

Lehigh Valley Momma

Jen is a Lehigh Valley Momma living la vida loca.  Jen is a stay-at-home-mom and admits that she is part desperate housewife, part wanna be domestic goddess!  She enjoys shopping and shopping and shopping. Did I mention shopping? Jen also loves saving money now too (while shopping).  It's possible to live more for less and her blog helps others follow her while she bargain hunts!

From one frugal stay-at-home-mom to another, I completely understand how addicting frugal shopping and bargain hunting can become!

CONGRATULATIONS to Jen at Lehigh Valley Momma for being our Frugal Expert of the Week!
