Pinterest Inspires the Frugal Lifestyle

A couple of days ago my friend Pat, author of "Corn in My Coffee Pot" sent me a message that Frugal Hacks had featured my blog and  pinterest board in an article on their blog.  

I had never heard of Frugal Hacks so I was anxious to find out what it was all about.  As it turns out, it's a blog  that focuses on living contentedly within your means.  In fact, their philosophy kinda goes along with mine...

"True contentment is not having what you want, 
but wanting what you have" 

DL, one of several contributing writers for Frugal Hacks lives in a mobile home and mentioned our remodel in her article, however she expounded even more about the pins I've accumulated on my pinterest inspiration board "Repurposed" .... Then she went on to give examples of how she repurposes things in her lifestyle.

Her entire article inspired me to take another look at my inspirations.  If you'd like to see them for yourself...just click on the board below. 
My "Repurposed" board has some of my favorite pins!

Living a frugal lifestyle can be creative and fun!

Well, you get the idea!
The concept of repurposing just flows through my veins...
My Mother  taught me all about being a good steward  and living the frugal lifestyle...she's the Queen of using what she has on hand.

Thank You Mom!
