As cool as a wooden fence would be, I'm not going into hock for it. Right now, I just can't afford it. My fenceline is a good 200 linear feet, and the estimate is running about 2600 dollars. Which is a lot of money. It can be done a llittle cheaper if I do it myself (or make Dave do it), but not much. And if I do save up some money, it would be better applied towards my student loans, or an emergency fund, which I should really have but don't. So I'm going to hold off for a bit.
But to the end of frugality, I'm hereby declaring August Cheap Bastard Month. Cheap meals, cheap entertainment. Who's with me?
