BACK TO THE BLOG !

Frugal RVAers,

 I've been very negligent regarding this blog for a couple of years. My health problems and my 'day job' were eating up all my time & energy. But now I am back! I hope to update my links area and add interesting and exciting sites for you to check out. Maybe do a little reciprocal linking with other PF bloggers.

If I hear of any new frugalisicious shopping sites or local stores, I'll let you know here.
I'll also add tips on saving money, upcycling, etc. from time to time.
See you soon!
