Lindsay from Living With Lindsay is not only a genius, but she’s a frugal genius! Check out this pretty frilly wreath she made from humble dollar store items, including a dollar store romance novel. If you feel weird about ripping up a book, how about using one of those pesky local phone directories that always shows up at the most inopportune time on your doorstep (am I the only one that really, really hates those?)
