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

Re: Daily Check-in January 17, 2020

Hi, frugal ones. I have spent money today. Took our cat to the vet for his shots and check up this morning ($95) and another $10 to order a supplement for what they think is arthritis in one of his vertebrae. He is 13 years old and otherwise healthy. Spent $20 on gas, then took my homeless shelter b...
