Should Our UK Reader Pay Off Her Mortgage?

Hiya internet! Mr. Frugalwoods here today! While Mrs. FW is our chief writer, comedian, hound ear scratcher, and yoga practitioner… I occasionally cobble together something mildly intelligible and toss it in her general direction for her editorial prowess. Don’t worry, she approved this post before I published it. Here at Frugalwoods HQ, we love getting questions from readers: Does Frugal Hound like treats? Eh, sometimes, unless the treat is anchovies in which case YES, YUM! When will Frugal...

September 2014 Expenditures

My Frugal Friends! I’m pleased to announce that September was one of the lowest spend months in Frugalwoods history. Mr. FW and I are positively delighted by the fact that we only spent $874.12 on everything other than our mortgage. Woo hoo! I’d hoped this would be a low spend month as we didn’t have any periodic bills (such as water or car insurance), emergencies, or unanticipated expenses.

Frugal Hound Sniffs: Planting Our Pennies

Because hey, who doesn’t need an investigative interview series conducted by a dog?! And so, I hope you’ll enjoy Frugal Hound Sniffs!
