- I took the kale from an Edible Arrangement that my mother received as a birthday gift and mixed up a small batch of kale pesto. This leafy green normally just serves to cover up the floral foam, so I felt good actually turning it back into usable food. Plus I saved all the stuff needed to make my own arrangement in the future. (Maybe a goofy April Fool’s one.)
- I brought home this
Flarben BlöopValby Ruta Ikea rug that someone had put out in front of their house. I’ll shampoo it and then list it on Craigslist. Gotta keep that college fund nice and plump!
- My friend gave me her Chinook coupon book which was about to expire. I used one $3-off-$25 Grocery Outlet coupon, gave another to a woman in line with me, and have plans tomorrow to meet a friend for coffee using a coupon for a free latté. Very excited about this!
- We had too many open packets of deli meat in the fridge, so I baked up two loaves of The Frugal Girl’s French bread and made tonight’s dinner a “sandwich buffet.” We avoided food waste and enjoyed a delicious meal. It didn’t hurt that I already had a small wheel of Grocery Outlet brie to add to the mix! I have such fond memories of the ham and brie French bread sandwiches I used to buy in London.
- I didn’t buy a Lear Jet.
Now your turn. What frugal things have you been up to?
