If you follow me on instagram (I’m thefrugalgirl, naturally), you know that last week, I spent a rare day on the couch. I had some sort of bug and was run-down, stuffed-up, and achy.

This morning, I was browsing through my Twitter feed and I saw that Mr. Money Mustache had tweeted out a link to a Washington Post article about the middle class squeeze that’s happening.
