Had sort of put this blog aside. Too busy with school, life, job hunting….
But calculated today that I’m making $7.81 per hour on my scholarship (which is $2.18 less than minimum wage where I live) and decided that writing about frugality would be a good way to keep me from feeling completely depressed or overspending.
I have been looking for part-time work since December with nary a nibble. Since I have a wide variety of experience and a good education, this has come as a bit of a surprise to me. Maybe it shouldn’t in these economically tough times.
But this isn’t a blog about complaining. I know that I’m far better off than many people. This is a blog about creatively stretching a dollar.
Be back soon…
