    Smile Ate these 3 sentences OK?

    Could you, please, tell if the following three sentences sound OK in English?

    1. She's been boosting my reputatuion of a very caring room-mate.

    2. I'm a little bit frugal, for fear of appearing flashy.

    3. I have a hard enough time sorting out my life, much less sorting out other people's life.

    You could say this, but its not often that people are frugal because they don't want to seem flashy.

    3. This phrase is fine.
