- My husband was given Portland Thorns (women’s MLS) soccer tickets, but we were unable to use them which was a huge bummer since they were in a fancy suite. However, we were able to pass them along to a friend, who then thanked us with a nice bottle of red wine.
- I splurged on last night’s April Fool’s dinner, which was a meatloaf, prepared in the shape of a layer cake and frosted with mashed potatoes. (My proud vegetarian father was with me when I bought the hamburger, and was shocked that it cost $7.99-per-pound at schwanky New Seasons.) However, I balanced it out with tonight’s burrito meal featuring slow cooked black beans and roasted potatoes. One expensive meal plus one extremely cheap meal level out to two reasonably priced meals.
- I put together a Buy Nothing group post offering a stack of recent decor magazines, and then wrote an additional post asking for a pair of sunglasses. Crossing my fingers, as my old sunglasses are an embarrassment due to one arm being missing. Yeah, I’m that lady.
- Our backyard lawn has once again bitten the dust, and it’s my husband’s instinct to reseed it as we do, every damned year. This means a yard that can’t be walked on for ages, plus watering and mowing. I say let the moss take over and accept it for what it is, which is deeply shady. I’m tempted to throw down a bed of mulch and then arrange outdoor furniture and potted plants. I am done fighting nature!
- I didn’t buy a Lear Jet.
Now your turn. What frugal things have you been up to?
