Musician's Friend Savings

I seriously love Let me tell you why! Whenever I need something for my violin or a gift for someone in my family who is musically inclined I always check Musician's Friend first. I find that many of the items on the site are cheaper than I can get locally, but Musician's Friend also has a low price guarantee.

Now I love the site even more because there's the "Stupid Deal of the Day" where you can get 1 item at a majorly discounted price each day. Plus there are also coupon codes available through, and the average retailmenot user saves about $24! How awesome is that?

Ukulele Lessons

I have a secret. I'm obsessed with the ukulele. Seriously, I really am.

Can I play one, though? Absolutely not! Do I want to learn? Totally!

I play the violin. I can read sheet music, and I can play a couple tunes on the guitar. Okay, the truth is I can play strum a couple chords on the guitar and pretend to know what I'm doing, but that's a start, right?

I really do want to learn to play a ukulele, though, and I even found a free Ukulele school online, All that's left is convincing the Hubby that I should spend a little of that cash I've been saving up from all my frugal shopping to buy myself a Ukulele. A quick search for ukulele musicians friend found some pretty cheap ones under $150, and that's definitely within my price range.

So, what do you think? Should I attempt to learn to play one?

What We Want To Buy

It's no secret that both the Hubby and I like to window shop and daydream about things we would buy if we had an unlimited amount of money to blow on random stuff. My office/craft room would probably be packed floor to ceiling with tons of crafting supplies I would never use. Hubby, he would have a massive collection of musical instruments.

Tonight I caught him "window shopping" online, looking at guitars we can't afford right now. He's making a list of "things I will own in the next 10 years", and apparently this eric krasno electric guitar made it's way onto that list tonight.

Honestly, I'm glad we can't afford even a fraction of the stuff we say we would love to have one day. Our house is tiny, and it's already bursting at the seems. It would take an army to clean a house big enough to fit all the stuff we would want, so I'll stick to my happy little frugal life in my little house with my little family.
