- My family indulged in an evening of Popeye’s takeout when my sister’s family was visiting. (They had a $5 deal which included two pieces of chicken, two sides and a biscuit, so it really was an amazing price!) I have a ton of leftover whipped butter packets as well as various “dipping sauces” including buttermilk ranch dressing. I used three of the ranch dressings for tonight’s salad, which caused my younger son flipped out from how delicious he thought it was. I’ve been using the butters for scrambled eggs, and will likely have enough to last a couple more weeks.
- I took my sons to see Kubo and The Two Strings this afternoon. Because we chose a matinee in a local theater, the price was only $7.50 per ticket, plus we were able to walk from the house. The movie was beautiful and since Laika is a local production company, I was supporting a hometown business.
- I cleaned one of my mother’s guest cottages yesterday and brought home an almost full canister of Hershey’s cocoa powder. The chore itself was particularly odious, so my mother tipped me an extra twenty bucks.
- I submitted another Clark Howard article and proposed three new article ideas.
- I didn’t buy a Lear Jet.
Now your turn. What frugal things have you been up to?
