1. I made a menu of suppers using what we have on hand as the basis. I only shopped for produce, milk, eggs, and a few snacks.
2. Then found a great sale on coffee and bought two bags and got three free. This isn't a coffee I can drink, but my husband took it with him to put in his freezer. He's set for a while.
3. I cooked all meals except one from scratch. The one not cooked was a free pizza.
4. Being out of the house more days than not, I am finding myself bored with my wardrobe. I resisted the urge to go shopping and challenged myself to find outfits on Pinterest I could recreate. I am enjoying the challenge.
5. I checked out some new British mysteries from the library.
6. I did buy five articles of clothing. I found pajama sets for my grandson, new on clearance for $1 a pair. I bought two different sizes. One fits now and two pair for this fall and upcoming growth spurts. I also bought an on clearance white cardigan for $7. I couldn't buy the yarn to make one for that price. While I was there I found another maxi skirt for $7. These will be combined with a nice blouse for a wedding outfit for later this summer.
7. I hung all the laundry I could hang to dry. Limited space and HOA rules limit me some, but I figure every little bit helps.
8. We ate leftovers for lunch everyday.
9. I have utilized the slow cooker for ease, money savings, and time savings. Tried a new to us recipe that my family has deemed a keeper. I'll share that soon.
10. This may not sound frugal, but education is not inexpensive. I've put a lot of time into my studying and I made a 100 on my first biology exam. My goal is to eek every pennies worth out of my education.
11. We had a family fun day at the park and everyone took along water bottles. We stopped off for a dozen doughnuts as a treat and took advantage of a discount.
12. We filled the cars with the lowest price has we could find and we continue to combine trips.
