- I mended a hole in one of my favorite T-shirts. The hole was dab-smack on the front, so I didn’t have high hopes for the result. However, since it was in an area of machine embroidery, the mend ended up being completely camouflaged. Yay!
- Dinner last night was everyone raiding the refrigerator and grabbing leftovers. Meals included chicken with mashed potatoes and gravy, red lentil soup, cereal and rice with tilapia. We avoided wasting food and freed up a number of nice Pyrex leftover containers, which is always a plus.
- My next-door-neighbor noticed a rat in our front yard, and set up traps for us. He apparently caught a huge black rat, which he thinks was the one that he’d seen. Having a neighbor who will do this kind of disgusting chore for us is absolutely priceless. We are very lucky. Revoltingly lucky, but lucky.
- I sold my congratulations-on-twenty-years-of-employment cookware set for $110, which was immediately added to the ol’ college fund.
- I didn’t buy a Lear Jet.
Now your turn. What frugal things have you been up to?
