I may not be posting for the next few days – I’m driving quite a ways to go to my alma mater’s bowl game on the 31st. You may wonder how a trip like that fits into a frugal girl’s lifestyle. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again…living a frugal life doesn’t mean depriving yourself of the things that make you really happy. I personally live for college football, and it makes me really happy, so I make it a priority. This year we unfortunately weren’t very good, so we won’t be playing in a very good bowl. Because of this, bowl tickets were under $20 (when we play in the good bowls, they’re usually over $200). I’ve never been to a bowl game, and I figured this was my chance to go. I’ll be driving up which saves money. I consider this to be a frugal decision – it’s allowing me to do something I’ve always wanted to do, and I’m taking advantage of the extremely low prices. I’m excited – now hopefully my team will win!
