Have you visited Maggie's blog lately? She has two great new posts, Free Ways To Increase My Standard of Living and a Rant About Comparison Shopping. I liked both of these because she discusses the nitty-gritty of living thriftily. It's hard work, and even a frugal icon like Miss Maggie must occasionally steel herself for the challenge.
Me, I've been feeling like a spendthrift after paying $200 for a sofa and buying a house in a ritzier zip code. Later this week I'll share the numbers on my decorating budget so you'll have a better idea where the money is going.
