I’m new here beginning today, but not new to frugality. That’s a blessing, since my husband died unexpectedly not quite four months ago.
I not only lost my best friend and beloved companion of almost 40 years, but the primary wage earner as well. Our 15-year-old grandson lives with us, and is disabled. So, medical bills are our major problem right now (both those associated with my husband’s illness and death, and those of my grandson’s).
However, we’d spent the previous five years learning to live frugally, although it was easier with two of us. My situation has changed, so I’m having to come up with new ideas appropriate for a “single grandma.” For instance, now I don’t always have the time to do things from scratch as I did before.
I’m looking forward to sharing tips and support with the rest of you. I’m sure I’ll learn a lot more.
