All in About Me

What's in name?

Sometimes, I feel like a fraud. I’m posting under the name Ms. Frugalette but I often feel like I’m not living up to the moniker. Living frugally is still a challenge for me. I’m making progress but I’m still spending on things I believe someone who calls herself Ms. Frugalette wouldn’t or shouldn’t spend money on.

Regrets, I have a few

I’m going to be totally honest in this blog (anonymity is a good thing) so I’m going to share financial information that I usually keep secret.


I did not learn financial responsibility from my parents. As a matter of fact, my mother hasn’t met a financial windfall that she couldn’t turn into financial disaster.
