5 Ways to Save This Week

A spring medley: seeds, cards and swatters.

We're watching our budgets almost as closely as the calendar these days.  

The economy still has at least a  nasty cough and winter has plenty of ice left in it.

Yet there are signs of spring.

The Boys of Summer have started their training in Florida and Arizona.

On Monday, many people were driving with windows down.

Stores have spring items on their shelves.

It feels good.

This week, Frugal Family roamed local stores like a bear out of hibernation and found some deals.

They will not save you a lot of money but they will remind you that there's such a thing as spring.

Remember to check with the merchant for additional conditions:
