Happy Thanksgiving, Y’all!


Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!  I hope you are all going to be spending the day with family and enjoying a delicious meal.  And maybe some football.  Or maybe just family.  And a delicious meal.

For those of you who are a little on the wild side, our Frugal Friday post will be coming a tad early and will be related to . . . you guessed it, Black Friday shopping!  A little bit later today, I’ll post my biggest tips and tricks to keeping sane and frugal that I’ve learned over my years of Black Friday shopping.   Be sure to come back later today and check it out!

If you will NOT be braving the crowds today and will instead be staying put to enjoy your Turkey Day, I hope you have a warm Holiday.

Happy Thanksgiving to you from The Frugal Virginia Farmhouse, Y’all!
