Feeling kind of *blah* here w/the cold and gray and need some motivation. Please share what you've done in the name of frugalness this week.

We got 2 free movie passes and DIDN'T BUY ANY CONCESSIONS! This is a major victory for us. (on the unfrugal side, I got suckered into buying a box of girlschout cookies from a student)

My kids were begging and pleading to get something from Chik-Fil-A after school, so I used promotional coupons for free sandwiches to get them a treat.


I also cleaned out my glove compartment and found a coupon for free Italian ices.

This week....

We went to the library for the first time (and its only a few blocks from the house).

Cloth diapered Jacob unless we left the house,

which was only to go babysit and make money.

Went out with my mom this morning, and went to Jump A Lot (indoor bounce house) and its free until Jacob is 18 months.

Stuck to our meal plan.

Haven't gone to the grocery store. So far since the 1st only spent $41 on groceries.
