Making Do in Hard Times/Anytime

I get more junk email than snail mail. I’m not always sure where it comes from. A few weeks ago I started receiving emails from, probably because I snoop around websites devoted to frugality.

My sister in law is a huge coupon gal and has been for many years. She's only in her mid-thirties, but I remember her clipping coupons back in her late teens!

She also isn't afraid to bargain either, even in a big box store!
