The Uber Frugal Month Challenge Is Back: July 2017 Edition!

It’s baaaaaaacccckkkk!!! In January, I launched my first-ever Frugalwoods Uber Frugal Month Group Challenge.

As part of our Uber Frugal Month experiment, Mr. Frugalwoods and I challenged ourselves to eat the backlog of food in our home. We’re not over-buyers by our very frugal nature, but we still had quite the collection of unique foodstuffs. All that bulk grocery shopping can sometimes come back to bite...
