Kristi @ The Potters Hand AcademyCheapskate Homeschooling

Prince Charming is a cheapskate, um, frugal. Very, very frugal. It’s not that we’re broke, he just can’t fathom spending some of the prices that I just sort of blink at and hit “buy” on anyway. To encourage marital bliss, I’ve discovered some ways to be a bit more frugal myself.
