- I photographed and then listed two Marimekko items for eBay last night. One was a duvet cover with sham that I picked up at Goodwill, and the other was a brand new pair of groovy Marimekko Converse sneakers that my sister gifted to me. Sadly they were the wrong size, so off to a new owner they’ll go. (Update, the duvet cover already has a bid at $49.99!)
- I helped my mother clean one of her guest cottages and added the money to the ol’ college fund. I’ve cleaned twice this month and will do one more next week. I’ll work on a Clark Howard piece this afternoon and work at the hospital both Wednesday and Saturday. I get paid Friday, which will be #4 of 5 paychecks this month between my husband and myself. We pretty much depleted our college fund earlier this month, but are filling it back up as fast as can be.
- I put a load of towels into the washing machine last night in order to take full advantage of the warm weather clothesline opportunity. I might be able to get two loads on the line today if I start early enough. (Update, the weight of the towels snapped my clothesline and now I have to wash my white towels all over again. However, I left them on the ground outside as I just can’t deal with it right now . . . )
- I talked to my next door neighbor about borrowing her power washer, which I’ll use for our backyard rock wall and the concrete in front of the house. I’ll wash her short driveway as a thank you.
- I didn’t buy a Lear Jet.
Now your turn. What frugal things have you been up to?
