Thank You!

You may have noticed that I’ve taken on some new challenges recently. (I blogged about them here and here.) One of the side effects of launching a new business venture is that old hobbies sometimes fall by the wayside, even the ones that are near and dear to us. I haven’t felt like I’ve been doing …

Shameless Self-Promotion

I’m coming off my April hiatus for this one blog post because I just had to share something I’m really excited about. Back in February, I wrote a blog post alluding to a new business venture that a friend and I were launching. Well, it’s official - Lynne and I are now offering our services as mediators and …

Gone Fishing

I’m taking a little bloggy break, just a short hiatus. Don’t worry, I’ll be back better than ever with more great free and frugal fun. In fact, I already have a fantastic contest lined up for May! So please check back on May 1st when the spring/summer edition of frugalfish will debut. In the meantime, …

Busy. The Universe. Guest Posts.

Whenever I sit down to try and write a blog post lately, the words come out like the title of this post – choppy, incoherent, and scattered. (More than usual. :) That’s because I’m so…


As promised in my To-Don’t post, so far I haven’t taken on any new projects in 2012. But I do …

The Automatic No

One of the things I find hardest about parenting an (almost) three-year-old and a five-year-old is the never-ending litany of requests that I get from the kids. It seems to go on and on from sunup to sundown. B.G. will ask for juice, I’ll get up to get it and pour it into a red cup. As …

Potty Wars

When B.G. was 18 months old, she witnessed an older child using the “big” toilet with the help of a potty ring. She immediately demanded that we put her on the big toilet too. I wish I could say that she was potty trained from that moment on, but that would be a lie. :) Over the next year she …

Let’s put that on the to-don’t list

Happy New Year!

I usually make resolutions, but I thought I’d try something different for 2012…

I am queen of the to-do list. If I have a lot to get done, making a list will ensure that I accomplish every last item, even if it kills me or, more likely, even if I push myself to the point where I get sick. When …

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to you and yours. I hope all your wishes come true in 2012. :)


Ok, maybe it’s not really TaDa! worthy, but I’ve rolled out those formatting changes I talked about recently, and I made some small changes to the website’s look. Thanks to everyone who commented and emailed about how they use the site. I’ve taken all your input into consideration and have made the following changes:

The monthly …

Changes and Feedback

I’m planning on making some formatting changes to the Frugal Fun Ottawa events calendar, and to the blog’s weekend updates. Before I do anything drastic, I’d love to get your input on the current format. If you have any comments or feedback, positive or negative (I can take it!), please leave a comment below or email …
