Frugal Friday: Living Below the Poverty Level and Shopping the Dollar Store
This week's Frugal Friday links sort of go hand-in-hand. Brittany's link is to a blog called The Peaceful Mom and it focuses on her new blog series about living on $28,000 a year - with a family of SIX.

My link today is a great one from Money Talks News on the 15 things you should buy at The Dollar Store. Often you wonder what's actually a value at The Dollar Store and what isn't. This article points out quite a few things that are totally worth buying there. I've purchased gardening tools, seed packets, holiday decor, gift wrap (absolutely!!!!), dishes, dish towels, etc., etc. from The Dollar Store. Sometimes it's just so much more affordable. Once in a while you can even find neat food items like jars of roasted red peppers for $1!!!
