Now that we are back from our trip to Hawai‘i, I figure it’s time to do my monthly update on our finances. I originally wrote down goals back in July, but I only started looking at it monthly in October when I realized I had completely ignored the goals after I wrote them. In order… ...

As we end our week in Hawai‘i, I’d say we did reasonably well on the cost end of things. We did end up spending slightly more than the $400/person I had originally predicted, but we were nowhere near the $793/day for just food and lodging it “should” cost for a couple, according to AAA in 2008. Insane.  1. We… ...

My husband and I celebrated eight years of marriage this week (yes we were total babies at our wedding). We generally don’t give each other gifts and instead would rather spend time and money on experiences.  This year is no exception. We spent our anniversary: Eating French toast with local bananas, coconut syrup, and star… ...

This week’s list for my Friday Frugal Five was easy to come up with since we’re a week and a half into “No” Spend November. So far, we’ve had 5 zero spend days in the first 9 days of the month.  If you’re interested in following along, I’m posting a daily update to Instagram to… ...

'I never want to retire.'  My husband is someone who wants – and expects – to be busy and productive all of his life. He joined the Marines at seventeen and has never shied away from a hard day's work since that day.  My uncle is in his late 60s and still working as a… ...

Since I decided to jump into a No (Low) Spend November without any kind of preparation, I'm going to have to get a bit creative this month. We are going to Hawaii in a week, so I'm going to be doing my very best to spend as little as possible while we're home so we can spend a little… ...

Since I decided to jump into a No (Low) Spend November without any kind of preparation, I’m going to have to get a bit creative this month. We are going to Hawaii in a week, so I’m going to be doing my very best to spend as little as possible while we’re home so we can spend a little more while we’re there.  Keeping our food budget as close to zero this month as I ...

Friday again! This week flew by between Halloween falling on a weeknight and the neighborhood dinner we attended last night. For those of you who are new, this idea to celebrate frugal wins for the week came from Katy at The Non-Consumer Advocate.  1. My son wore the same Halloween costume (Toothless from How To Train Your Dragon!) for the third year in a row. I got it big initially, and it’s just a ...

Over the weekend I had a friend in town for a short visit. She now lives in Oregon but didn’t grow up in the northwest, so she’s spent very little time in Washington. Since we only had until early afternoon, I decided to show her around our downtown.  Next time she comes for a visit and we have more time, I want to take her on a ferry to Langley on Whidbey ...

So I know it's November this week, but it's still technically October for now, so it counts that I finally got to planting the rest of my garlic, right'  Since it's been abnormally warm and dry, I was hesitant to plant garlic early (like late September) like I have some years, but then October arrived… ...
