- I had a meeting downtown and used my bus pass to get there and back. This work perk not only saved me gasoline, but also the cost and hassle of parking the car.
- I was tempted by the delicioso Mexican food cart on my way home, but instead came home to scramble up some eggs and brew a cup of tea.
- I saw that rain was in the forecast, so I sprinkled some shade-friendly grass seed over my patchy backyard lawn. I already had the seed, so it was a sunk cost. (I refuse to water the lawn, which might explain the patchiness.)
- I wore my thrifted clothing, slept on thrifted sheets, packed leftovers to bring to work, walked to the grocery store, shared extra donuts with a neighbor, got paid for something I sold awhile back, submitted a Clark Howard article and I sent my husband to the DMV and DEQ to register the car. I was pulled over by the police last week, as my tags were expired, but he told me that all would be forgiven if I took care of it within 30 days.
- I didn’t buy a Lear Jet.
Now your turn. What frugal things have you been up to?
