frugal things you have done in August

I have used my zoo membership and saved money
I reorganized the girls room and found we did not need to buy much for school
I have been using a lot of food coupons for free meals out the library program gave us a nice amount of free meal coupons this year plus gift cards were given out so I have been using those as well
I have been decluttering and finding new uses for things already at the house instead of buying new

I have not bought anything I do not need. I still have no balance on my credit card. I haven't since May 20th of this year.

Used our museum membership and free street parking instead of the pay garage
Ate lunches at home; brought water in the car
Hung laundry instead of using dryer (it dried faster anyway!)
Scavenged for school supplies and bought loss-leaders
Swam in the pool and ate in, instead of going out on weekend evenings
Planned errands to use the least amount of gas
