MY FRUGALITY IS SHOWING........................AGAIN.....


You know me.....if I can make something instead of buying it....I will.

It's the end of the year....and I did not have a new 2013 calendar...but I had already booked some 2013 appointments.....so....I made my own.

Downloaded some free printable calendars on google....covered an old composition book with some old papers and lace I had on hand.....and instant calendar for 2013.



I didn't really care if it was the "prettiest" calendar on the block....I just wanted something I could use....and NOT PAY $15.00 to $20.00 for.

Being frugal ROCKS!!

hugs,

Jo
