One of my favorite blogs....www.theprudenthomemaker.com
shares each week what her frugal accomplishments for the week are. I thought it would be fun to do something similar here, and share what is is that each of us did to save money this week. Let's face it, for me my hours are steadily declining, and I am always looking for new ideas on how to save.
Perhaps we can inspire each other. Who knows.
So I will begin.
I shaved 10.00 off a monthly recurring bill.
I used left over marshmallows that have been in my fridge since we went camping to make rice krispy treats
I made home made granola bites
Our electric bill this month is down from 113.00 to 69.82 but it has been a month where we haven't really had to use air or heat
We were shopping at Walmart and our local one has a built in Subway restaurant, we had not eaten yet, and everyone wanted to go but despite the difficulty in doing so, we resisted, came home and cooked dinner. My husband said he was so proud of us for doing that.
My husbands bike needed a repair but we work next to a bike shop and the guy fixed it for free and my husband even got a pair of chaps for free for riding in colder weather.
I paid .50 a pound for some potatoes.
I cancelled our monthly subscription to Netflix
And I forgot to mention, our son goes to public school, and this week, we opted not to purchase his school pictures but to take our own when we finally set up to take those annivesary pictures we were suppossed to take with our own camera.
We also got a last minute notice that we were going to have company Saturday night, and I was trying to figure out what to offer them to eat because it was dinner time, but everything was frozen, so we knew we could cook hamburgers from a frozen state or we offered breakfast for dinner. Breakfast for dinner was selected. This was a frugal event for us, because we really wanted to throw in the towel and order pizza (and normally that is what we would have done.) Dinner turned out great, and my uncle brought his new girlfriend and her family to meet us and they announced they are getting married! So we now have a wedding to plan in a little less than a month.
And that is what I was able to accomplish. Please share what you have done no matter how big or small you may think it is, I would love to hear it and learn something new!!!
