Festival Of Frugality #144 – The Host Bailed Out Edition.

Sorry for the delayed posting of this, but the person who was scheduled to host today’s Festival of Frugality #144 bailed out at the last minute. So while this will be a bare-bones effort here, I would appreciate if all of you who were included would link back to the Festival; it’s the only way these things work and it is a requirement. Thanks to everyone who submitted this week!
