- I gave a small stack of Real Simple and Martha Stewarts to someone from my Buy Nothing group who wanted magazines for a vision board. Of course, they were free subscriptions from trading in random airline miles through MagsforMiles.com.)
- I was craving comfort food, so I prepared The Pioneer Woman’s pot roast for dinner. This may seem like an odd “frugal thing,” but the $17 chuck roast will feed the three of us for two days. And two days of luxurious meals for $17? Much more frugal than anything from a restaurant. Sometimes frugality costs a little extra. As a bonus, I used up the last of the mashed potatoes from Thanksgiving!
- My son bought a shirt at the consignment shop that had deliberate split seams up the sides, so I took a needle and thread to it, and was able to alter it to his liking.
- I just finished binge-watching The Man in The High Castle through my mother’s Amazon Prime account. I think I might be ready cancel Netflix or at least talk to my sister about sharing an account.
- I didn’t buy a Lear Jet.
Now your turn, What frugal things have you been up to?
