Frugal Living

Frugal Friday


Milwaukee Art Museum

Another week has passed and it’s another week of saving some cash.  Here is a run down of what we did this week to save money.

  1. I have an unruly set of eyebrows.  Without proper maintenance, they turn into a unibrow.  I used to pay someone every 3 weeks to wax them, now I do it myself with a pair of tweezers and a lot of patience.  I did that this week.
  2. The first Thursday of every month is free day at the Milwaukee Art Museum.  After going to an appointment with my daughter on Thursday, I decided to visit the museum for a couple of hours.
  3. We ordered pizza last weekend, which we don’t do very often.  Dominoes had a $7.99 3 topping large pizza special.  We ordered 2 and my daughter picked them up, so no delivery fee or tip.  This provided dinner for 4 and lunch for 2 the next day.
  4. I brown bagged it to work everyday.  Thankfully, my restaurant options are limited near my employer, so anything I can put together at home is the better option.
  5. I carefully menu planned and stayed below my weekly grocery budget.  Not buying meat helps that cause.

What did you do to save a few dollars this week?
