Dress Like a Diva on a Thrift Store Budget by Kimberly Danger It’s a common misconception that you have to sacrifice style while on a budget.  As a long time fan of fashion and all things frugal, I’ve never believed that.  For as long as I can remember, I’ve found ways to create the looks I wanted at prices I could afford.  If you’re truly a frugal fashionista like me, you’ll find a way to have your cake and eat it too.

Throwing a Super Bowl Party on a Budget According to Hallmark, Super Bowl Sunday is most popular party occasion of the year – topping even New Year’s Eve.  The great thing about Super Bowl parties is they are casual, fun and can be easily done on a budget — giving everyone a real reason to celebrate!

Saving Big Bucks at Aldi by Kimberly Danger I recently made my first trip to the brand new Aldi grocery store in my town.  I had big expectations – moms have been raving about it on Mommysavers for years.  My first impression didn’t generate fireworks – in fact, I was a little disappointed.  Upon deeper inspection, I began to see why moms get so excited about it.  Atmosphere aside, this is a bargain hunter’s paradise.  You can save money — serious money, if you shop there regularly.
