Festival Of Frugality: Back to School Edition

By Money Crashers

high school lockersAs the Principal of the Festival Of Frugality School, I’ve elected to award one participant the Festival of Frugality Valedictorian Award.

As the Valedictorian, this student of finance and life has been well-liked by his fellow students and always brings his positive attitude with him wherever he goes. He brings out the good in others and shines as an example of what other students should aspire to be like. In one particular instance, titled Squirreling Gone Wild #22: Drive-Thru Discount, Ray of the Squirrelers class exhibited grace and charity after his resourcefulness led him to a tiny financial discount along his day to day path.

Now it’s time to pick your classes. Review the course schedule below and enjoy!

Course 10b – Home Economics

Course 19H – Health and Nutrition

Course 9I – Economic Science

Course 27C – Social Civics (Government and Tax)

Course 101M – Money Management Basics

Course 44D – Performing Arts

Once you’ve chosen your classes, report them to the attendance office and share them on your favorite Social Network. Lunch will be held in the cafeteria at 12PM, and yearbook pre-orders can be made at the front desk.

And to the student who filled my office with all the workout equipment from the school gym, the jokes on you! I’ve been using the equipment and I’ll have no problem physically putting you in detention when I find you :)

    Once again I seem to have gotten passed over–and this time I submitted my post via a contact form instead of the problematic Carnival page form.

      Let me know if you have any other questions after we try to sort things out over email. Sorry you’ve had so many problems with the Carnival page form!
