What was the one frugal thing you did this week that saved you the most money? Tell us about other frugal things you've already done or will do?
The one thing I did that saved us the most $$$ was not rushing out to buy a new computer while my old stupid one is dying its slow death! That is definitely what I WANTED to do!!! Instead, I took my mom up on her offer to borrow her laptop that she doesn't use. I'll be calling a friend's techy dh to beg him to take a look at my old stupid one to see if it can be salvaged. Maybe I can barter my dh's carpentery skills for her dh's IT skills, lol! (I know she has things she wants done aroung the house that her dh never gets around to doing, lol!)
Other frugal things (mostly habits for me).......
Packed school lunches.
Line dried laundry.
Planned menus using what we have on hand. All very easy stuff since dh has been gone all week at dinner time.
Took a sub job one morning when I didn't really feel like doing it.
Used the library for books, exercise dvds, internet service.
Have not gone to Walgreens, Target, Wal-mart or any other stores. We just really do not need anything extra this week. Passed up a few *good* deals. Sooner or later, whatever I passed up will be on sale again before I actually run out of whatever.
Will mostly be staying home this weekend. I hope to do some baking and stashing some stuff in the freezer.
