- A co-worker brought in two huge bags of plums on Friday. I brought home a small bag for eating, but talked to her about buying a larger amount for making plum jam.
- I’m not working very much this due to a number of reasons, but I’ll make up for it in September, as it’ll be another five paycheck month. (Three for my husband, two for me) Less will go into savings this month, but we’ll be fine.
- My older son has been sick all week, and worsened yesterday. Of course, it happened on a Saturday. I brought him to a local private urgent care center instead of an emergency room. Not only were we seen almost immediately, but our out of pocket expense was only $47 which included a variety of different lab tests. I was pleased until I remembered that I’d forgotten to use our HSA card.
- Tomorrow is our 23rd anniversary, so my husband and I are planning to dine at a local fancy-schmancy restaurant. However, we’ll sit in the bar and enjoy food from the happy hour menu. This exactly what we did the evening after our wedding. Great food, but nice and simple. Plus of course, frugal.
- I didn’t buy a Lear Jet.
Now your turn. What frugal things have you been up to?
