Lately, I have felt like our spending was out of control. We have been dining out more, and have had a bunch of little expenses that quickly added up. Last week, I went to our pantry looking for something, and realized we have eaten most of our stockpile and the shelves were getting a bit light.
Its time to return to my frugal roots, and keep myself in check for accountability sake. So here are the past week’s frugal living accomplishments:
Used a coupon at Lowe’s to save on the soil & lumber for our garden
Attended a seed swap
Started seed for our garden
Replanted green onions from scraps
Began sweet potato slips from a sweet potato that was too small for dinner
Returned a few items to Target and used the refund to purchase a few staples that we needed
Printed and clipped coupons
Paid off a credit card before it began accruing interest (that 0% for 1yr promotion was a life saver, but it really could have burned us if we weren’t careful)
Sold a chair on an online yard sale site
Purchased an item I’ve wanted on a Facebook yard sale site (I collect Fiestaware so these were an awesome buy at $6 when they retail for over $20)
Bought our milk from Halo Farm
Watched a few shows for free on Hulu
“Purchased” FREE Kindle ebooks off of Amazon
What did you do last week to save your family money?
