Happy weekend, everyone!
My weekend was packed! House hunting, dinner, dancing, brunch, wine tasting, spending time with friends and family, laughing, eating, so much eating and general merriment left me feeling full, and not just because I ate ate ate.
I love my family, and I love my friends. I’m finding that the friends I have here in Portland are family members that I get to choose, and they’re awesome. I’m also finding that even though I didn’t get to choose them, my parents and sister are some of my favorite people on the planet.
Frugal Portland Elsewhere:
- At the College Investor, I wrote about making your own Christmas presents.
- At Beautiful Giveaways, I’m giving away $50 worth of feminine modest clothing.
- My 31-point personal philosophy was featured in The Money Mail Carnival as his favorite post of the week.
Sign up for the Frugal Portland Gift Exchange:
- Click the present in the sidebar or click here to sign up! You can sign up until November 19. Here are the rules: the gift either has to be homemade or white elephant-ish (so, unused, regifted, not really appropriate) or under ten dollars. It wouldn’t be a Frugal Portland exchange if we had a high limit, now, would it? There are exceptions, of course. You can regift a more expensive candle or something, but not a half-used one! The gift has to fit inside a small flat rate box, and it should match your personality. Send a card and something cute and fun — something that would make the recipient smile. You’ll send it out by December 16!
