used coupons
hung laundry out
bought a mattress on a 6 months same as cash deal
stayed out of stores, only sent dd with a list
oh, and found that $500!

It's funny when we do these lists. I've been living frugal for so long, I think of it as daily life, not frugal things I do.

We just got a used Beetle for a runaround car.

I have not used the credit card since I made the final payment May 20th.

have to add one more. I cut one of my ds's hair this weekend myself. He wanted a pretty short buzz cut, took me about 10 minutes and was free. Totally free. I can't even include the cost of the clippers any more. I bought this pair of clippers when my oldest boy always wanted a buzz cut and I was paying like $6 each time, so I figured if I bought the clippers (which was honestly a momentary hardship) and cut his hair 4 times, they would pay for themselves. Since that was close to 20 years ago now, and I've given 100's of buzz cuts since then, and even used these to shave the dog until I bought ones just for the dog, they are more than paid for in savings.

I called Direct TV and told them I wanted to cancel the HD portion-$10 month savings.
