Money Savers of Owensboro

Helping Everyone Save money

Frugal Friday

Each Friday I will be psoting  frugal idea just for fun! I love D.I.Y projects so I thought  I would share some on here too! Making stuff yourself saves money too! I have a list of projects I want to attempt. As I do, I will post pics and let you know how it went! This should be a fun part of this blog. So stop cutting those coupons for a second and look at this awesome frugal Friday idea =)
