- When I completely screwed up my hair, a local reader (and stylist) generously offered to come to my house and fix it for free. She did a great job and left with a review copy of Handmade Gatherings, a jar of applesauce and a half-dozen pumpkin scones.
- My husband and I both registered our American Express cards for Small Business Saturday, which means that we’ll both buy three individual $10 gift cards from local small businesses and have the money automatically refunded back to us.
- After 16-1/2 years of being at different school and different social groups, my son and the son of my best friend have finally clicked. They’re on the same futsal team, which means that I got to spend my Saturday night both watching my son play indoor soccer and chatting with my best friend Sasha! Me, a Cheap date? You betcha!
- I’ve been taking full advantage of Thanksgiving week grocery sales to stock up on butter and flour. Bob’s Red Mill flour, both unbleached white and whole wheat pastry at 2/$5 means I end up driving the three blocks to the store, but it’s well worth it. And butter at $2.50/lb is filling the back of my fridge. Hopefully it’ll be a good long while until I have to pay regular prices for these pantry staples.
- I didn’t buy a Lear Jet.
Now your turn. What frugal things have you been up to?
