Frugal Friday: Frugal Moving Tips

Moving costs got you down? Well, A & I have found some great ways to save you some rent money!

First: boxes. Don't pay for them! Cruise behind your local liquor store and scoop up as many as you can, but watch out for those pesky transient leavings!

Movers: Why pay for movers when you have parents who for some strange reason actually like helping you do people's most loathed activity. Repeatedly...and a lot.

Storage: Have too much junk and realize that you can't in
good conscience give the Goodwill anymore single shoes or broken coat racks? Those parents have a garage don't they?!

Lastly: Free advice. Have a good sense of humor, because if you
don't...you may lose it in front of those nice parents and start screaming about Rush Limbaugh or something weird.

Check out my first post on Intimate Weddings Blog!

I'm so excited to now be contributing to the Intimate Weddings blog!

Check my first post out here!

Sorry for no Frugal Friday!

We've been doing this:

Non stop since Thursday so didn't get our Frugal Friday in gear. Our new place is adorable though and you can see pics of our old place (much less adorable) on our flickr link, to the right on our blog page, if you're so inclined!

Have so many projects and news to share as soon as we're less crazed from the move!

Frugal Friday: The Best Things In Life Are Free

I hope this doesn't feel patronizing, but I've got the most Frugal Friday of all: The Great Outdoors! Hopefully you're enjoying the little heat wave we've had this week and get a chance to actually go outside and enjoy it. I've watched it through the shop windows with envy each day and can't wait to actually go outside and feel the sun on my Vitamin D
deficient skin!

If you need to work a little shopping into your weekend, at least do it frugally: Addison Endpapers in Oakland is having a studio sale, the Alameda Antique Fair is this Sunday and Borders' across the nation are closing and having sales at a store near you!
