- Yesterday was my son’s high school graduation, and instead of going to a restaurant I pre-prepared a meal that could be shared with lots of family. It was simple but there were no complaints. It worked out especially well since we ended up having a fairly short period of time between his ceremony and his high school’s “all night party.”
- My son needed to bring his swimsuit to the party, but when I pulled them from the swim bag I was met with that awful “scritch” sound that only comes from spent elastic. (Seriously, I think that sound is worse than fingernails against a chalkboard!) There wasn’t time to begin a search for a new/used suit, so I called my mom and asked her to bring some elastic to the graduation ceremony. She then threaded new elastic through the swim trunks and my son was rewarded a perfectly serviceable suit. Thanks, mom!
- I had to stay up to go fetch my son at the crack of dawn, so I used the time to finish writing up a Clark Howard article.
- The leftovers from last night will serve as road trip food, as we are driving down on Friday to pick our older son up from college.
- I didn’t buy a Lear Jet.
Now your turn. What frugal things have you been up to?
