Re: How Does Your Location Help or Hinder Your Frugality?

I remember Amy D. in one of her books compared country living to city living in terms of frugality and said each place offers its own chances to be frugal, and I think that's true.

Re: Weighted Blankets?

I have daily rituals that I enjoy and look forward to: reading the paper while drinking my hot tea in the morning; catching up with friends on facebook while eating my lunch in my office; watching Jeopardy while I fold clothes or exercise in the afternoon; watching a show on Netflix with DH.
