A little over two years ago, I opened up an incredibly interesting can of worms on my facebook page with the status updated, “Why we won’t let our graduating senior go to college in the fall, unless things change.”
As you can imagine, it opened up discussion with 150 fascinating responses from people still trying to pay off student loan debt to 20-somethings who mentioned partying their first two years of school away and regretting all the wasted money, to parents who think their kids shouldn’t have to be worried about money in college.

With fall temps around the corner (que chorus of angels who watch over us southerners), that means one important frugal fashionista fact, well, two if we’re being technical, BOOTS and SCARF season!!
My very first Frugal Fashionista posts showed my love of boots and scarves. In fact, the first two videos I did here on the blog both featured how to tie scarves.

It’s so wonderful to have quick and healthy options available in minutes. Making the homemade bisquick without any shortening has been such a time saver in the kitchen.
I’ve made this Pumpkin Coffee Cake a few times and the last time I whipped it up, a wonderful mistake occurred. I was out of eggs, but had already mixed all the ingredients except for the eggs. In the past, I’ve substituted both applesauce and bananas for eggs, so I decided to give some extra pumpkin (1/3 cup) a try and it was amazing. [Read More...]
