- I hitched a ride to my son’s soccer game with another mother since the game was an hour away in another town. I gave her a jar of homemade applesauce as a thank you for the ride. We stopped at a Mexican restaurant on the way home for takeout, and I ordered side orders of rice, beans and corn tortillas. I added toppings from the salsa bar and drank water in my thrifted to-go cup. Thrifty, filling and ¡muy delicioso!
- I mended a backpack which I’d used in nursing school. It’s kind of served as the family’s backup backpack through the years and is now at the ready for whoever is next out of a backpack.
- We’ve been lying low lately which is the ultimate frugal activity. I’m not recommending the people stay sequestered at home, but there’s something very simple and satisfying about lounging around and watching back-to-back episodes of Gilmore Girls on Netflix.
- I was able to get a cat scratching post from my neighborhood’s buy nothing group. Hopefully this will keep my cat from scratching up the furniture. I rubbed catnip into it which she enjoyed, although I have yet to see her use it for any actual scratching. Any suggestions?
- I didn’t buy a Lear Jet.
Now your turn. What frugal things have you been up to?
