OMG, I've been “frugaled”!

Written by Bakersfield Magazine

Ch,ch,ch,ch,changes...

Written by Bakersfield Magazine

When it comes to change, I fear it as much as the next guy. Maybe more (just ask my wife). Sure, some changes are inevitable, and I usually agree after the fact that it was for the better. I mean, I finally got internet service that doesn't sound like a CB radio when you log in!
