frugal dates

Even though Tony and I live 10 minutes from the most beautiful beaches on the East Coast, we’re just not really into the beach. I don’t like to be wet, Tony doesn’t like to be hot, and we’re both too paranoid and neurotic to allow ourselves to get sun tans. But I just found these […]

A fabulous, frugal (free!) date

by Karen on October 24, 2008

Tonight, Tony and I wanted to get out of the house, but our budget is pretty tight this month. Armed with some coupons, we headed out to have some fun without spending any money. First, we headed to the mall where I redeemed a coupon for a free pair of underwear from Victoria’s Secret. Honestly, […]
