Here is an article that was in this weeks Newsweek that a more frugal friendly than the other one posted.
oh thank you for posting that!
I unabashedly, and unashamedly, throw out the mouse with the mousetrap! Actually, I have DH or DS do it when possible because I am just too squeamish. Yuck!
That said, I like that the article recognizes that being frugal is being careful with your money and realizing you can choose how to spend it. The couple in the article line dry year round (among other money saving measures that may sound extreme), but they also took their adult family to Disney World.
I also like that the author points out that not everybody has the option to save money in the same ways that his parents do.
