Two-Minute T-Shirt Apron Tutorial

It is Salsa and Fireman Food day at the Kramer house!  Mom is busy catering the county fire meeting and my siblings brought home 5 crates of tomatoes from their visit to my aunt and uncle’s house.  Makes for a very messy kitchen and busy day! When you know you...

Costly Clogs

Costly Clogs

Financial folk say you should spend no more than 8% of your annual income on clothing… which leaves me the potential spending of $1,152 each year.  Purchasing this one pair of clogs would take up 22% of my annual clothing budget, which is very close to 1/4. Which is a...

Frugal (Re)Fashion

It was a gorgeous day on campus today… Perfect weather to wear my “new” skirt! Of course I did not actually buy something new.  This skirt is made from a pair of dress khakis that I initially purchased at my all-time favorite thrift shop, the Depot.  I got a little...

Goodwill Goldmine: Designer Purses

Goodwill Goldmine: Designer Purses

Yes, designer purses.  Plural.  Dooney and Bourke, vintage, mint condition.  There were three, I bought two because I didn’t want to be too greedy.  This is not the right attitude for thrift shopping, I know.  I should put my sharp elbows to good use, but was just feeling too nice. ...
