Stop thinking papier-mâché is just for kids. Papier-mâché is becoming increasingly popular to crafters and a medium for those in fine arts. It’s one of oldest art forms in history, and part of the reason we know this for a fact is that papier-mâché is so durable we still have pieces around to remind us.

By: MrsChak, dated Aug 28, 2003
No Income? Tips on How To Survive!

In September 2001, my husband's company closed the doors. We had 3 days notice. Being that I'm a stay at home mom who did some computer work from home, it was a scary time for us. Luckily, my husband was working again by November, and we thought we were over the hump, and could go on with our lives.

Unfortunately for us, his new company cut all of their higher salaried people in order to stay afloat in September 2002. Again, we were caught unaw

(Edition: 1) - Why I'm proud to be Frugal!
By: AngieC, dated Dec 28, 2002
"Aren't you good?!" my friends say as they watch me go through the checkout, trolley laden with fruit, vegetables, flour, rice and other staples, and pay with cash. Then they groan as their trolleyload of ready-made, prepacked, over-flavoured and nutritionally worthless goo is totalled, whip out a credit card and announce they've gotta run, they're driving off to Weightwatchers now, then they're stacking shelves in the afternoon to pay for all this; they'd lov

(Edition: 1) - Taking the Frugal Grocery Challenge on the Road
By: Chloie (formerly 220), dated Dec 27, 2002
(Read to the tune of "The Beverly Hillbillies")

Come listen to a story
about a penny-pinching friend,

On a mountain vacation,
she had to keep her family fed,

In unfamiliar stores,
she hunted for some deals,

Can she stretch her dollars
on vacation meals?

...Taking the Frugal Grocery Challenge
on the Road, that is...


Come join me as I take the Frugal Grocery Cha

Scrapbooking is a fast growing hobby, one that can become quite pricey, if you let it. Here are just a few frugal tips to keep yourself within your budget.

Scrapbooking is constantly growing, and if you try to keep up with every new item, you will definitely go broke!

By: Douglas, dated Dec 24, 2002
Come say it with me! "We do NOT need that $2.99 box of cereal, that $1.99 box is cheaper and tastes JUST as good!"

The lovely issue of name brands vs. generic brands. The whole shopping experience can be summarized in just a few short words: When you buy a name brand product, you're paying for the name, NOT the product!

Every day, we're faced with making decisions on what products we want to buy. From clothing to food, to computers to office supplies, we&#

(Edition: 1) - A Frugal Journey is Common Sense
By: MrsChak, dated Dec 23, 2002
I started my "Frugal Journey" just over a year ago now. Some people seem to think that if you are Frugal, you must be depriving your family, or hoarding every penny, or you must not be a giving person. All of this isn’t true.
