Can You Help This Reader?
I have recently lost a lot of weight (and still have a lot to go!) and most of my clothes are noticeably big on me now. Sure, it is flattering when friends and family notice the loose-fitting clothes but to everyone else I must be starting to look like the woman who has no concept of clothing sizes. I would love some advice on what a frugal dieter such as myself can do to update my wardrobe inexpensively as I (hopefully!) get smaller. I don't like the thought of buying clothes I will not wear more than a handful of months. Especially if I have to change sizes a few more times. But I do need and like to be able to dress appropriately. I need both casual and business casual clothing options as well as workout attire so any tips from others who have been through this would be most helpful and super appreciated. I am also struggling with getting rid of my bigger sized clothing. Part of me wants to toss it because I never want to need it again but my frugal side is saying "keep it in case you need it again". What should this frugal girl do?

I like to only use natural products on and for my pets, but they can be so expensive. I already make my dog's food. Do any of your readers have any inexpensive recipes for natural dog shampoo? As far as I know, he does not have any skin sensitivities. Thanks so much!
