And you're realllllyyyyy going to love this :)
Last year I followed a blog link to another blog where the author had written a post called The Queen of Frugal: Lessons from Butterberry Farm. Which one is the greater hook...the term Queen of Frugal, or any place named Butterberry Farm??
The post was the first in a series where the author wrote about a woman she met (at her Farmer's Market) named Mrs. Adelia, who, it turns out, is truly a frugal queen. You have to read the post there to understand, but she and her family live SO truly simply, but very very well. And you won't believe how little actual money they spend. It had the ring of authenticity of someone who's BEEN living a way I am headed towards but still find elusive in many ways.
I hope you enjoy discovering Mrs. Adelia yourself. Here is Kendra's Blog entitled Handprints on the Wall...a wonderful blog, and here is where Kendra begins her series about Mrs. Adelia entitled Lessons from Butterberry Farm. If you want to read it chronologically, start at the bottom of that page at the oldest entry, and read upwards.
