Frugal Friday: Don’t Buy Stuff You Can’t Afford

Some of the best, the simplest money saving advice is, well, simple. Sometimes, it’s so simple, it may be hard for some to believe.

You’ve probably already seen this. But, it’s priceless – in more ways than one. And it’s sure to make you laugh. Enjoy! (Thanks, Lissa, for passing it on to me!)
