This week was super hot, but I still managed to be a little frugal. Here is what I accomplished.
Returned a watermelon that was just too disgusting to eat. I used the money on a pair of scissors from the thrift store. These are the same scissors I had listed on my Amazon wish list for less than half the price.
Despite the heat, I helped my mom paint miles of fencing. She gave me ½ dozen eggs from her hens that have finally started laying again.
My mom and I took a break from painting to carpool to the grocery store to stock up on on-sale turkey (.99 cents a pound – unheard of here!) and bacon.
I cut the man’s hair.
Finished sewing a new tote bag for myself using fabric from my stash. I managed to get paint from the fence on it because that’s just what I do.
We arranged for firewood to be delivered at the end of this month for use next winter. We took advantage of this deal because we will save almost $100 a cord.
The usual frugal activities occurred including hanging laundry on the line, eating at home, and using up leftovers.
What did you do last week to save money?
