- I sold my Goodwill table for $135, which is not too shabby since I picked it up for $24. It took a few days of e-mailing back and forth, but mostly because I worked long 12-hour shifts on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
- I stopped by one of my mother’s guest cottages yesterday to her help finish cleaning between tenants. I didn’t get paid, but I did bring home two bags of groceries which included an untouched mini marionberry pie, orange juice, milk, bread, ice cream, peanut butter, jam, creamer and a power bar.
- My husband forgot to bring his packed lunch to work last night. Instead of buying lunch, he came home around midnight to pick it up. (The poor guy work 5 P.M. to 5 A.M.)
- My older son and I stopped at Goodwill, although I didn’t buy anything. However, I did spy a few 0f my favorite targeted savings banks. I’ve come across this elderly couple at least five or six times through the years. I kind of wish I’d been buying them all along as I think they’d look cool all lined up together on a shelf. Buying nothing? 100% savings!
- My fancy thrifted Lane recliner was kind of wobbly, so I turned it upside down and found that it was missing three bolts. I took one out and proceeded to have the hardware store match it. I spent a grand total of $1.80, and now the chair no longer wobbles. Not a bad investment, especially since it would have cost $775 to buy a new version of this chair.
Now your turn. What frugal things have you been up to?
