The Frugal Hostess does not go by FruHo for nothing. Assume that everything on this blog was sent to her as a bribe and that every link is producing revenue. That is not even close to being true, but this way she can avoid the annoying notes within ever post to explain when she's been given a free book or jar of tomatoes. She's frugal, so she's taking anything free that makes sense for the blog and doesn't offend her (shoddy) moral compass.
