Oops! I missed Thrifty Thursday, so let's do Frugal Friday this week!

What have you done this week to be frugal? Do you have a frugal or unfrugal weekend planned?

  • with the extra Obama money, We put it towards debt

  • turned off heat but might have to turn on again seeing as snow is still to come next week

  • air dried all laundry except towels

  • haven't made any unnecessary trips so therefore we still have a 1/2 tank of gas left :)

  • bought an used bike for DS for Easter off Craiglist for 15.00 instead of Easter basket and candy.


  • made chili and then bought taco bell so we had two dinners last night LOL

I had a car die and so our frugal answer was paying $700 for a car instead of $4700 for a new (to us) one.

We made the menu for the upcoming week and have cleaned out our freezer and pantry with those meals, so that is a frugal victory for us.

"UNFRUGAL! I'm going to Vegas this weekend. I have the hotel and airfare paid for so it's just food and drinks and shopping... I'll try to keep it in control, LOL."

Oh, fun! I haven't been to Vegas since 2003.
