    I spent my labor day working so I didn't have time to spend any money. Can't get more frugal than that! LOL!

    Something frugal I did this Labor Day is not invite people over. My husband is notorius for inviting a whole bunch of people over. This weekend we just enjoyed each other's company this weekend and we did not go out to eat. We ate food we already had in the house.

    Staying home and swimming in the pool instead of traveling to a crowded beach. Also watch some movies with family.
