Frugal Living

Frugal Friday

Even with it being my daughter’s birthday this week and the week that we mail 2 college tuition checks, we were able to save some money along the way.  Here is what we did.

  1. My church has rotations every few weeks to leave things for other to take.  I found a nearly brand new North Face winter hat.  It’s in perfect condition and was free.  I looked up it’s value online and it sells for $32.
  2. I have the worst eczema, but only have a flare up every 5 or 6 years.  I know exactly the steroid cream I need, but it requires a doctors prescription which requires a visit and a copay.  My mom had an extra, unopened tube of the exact stuff my doctor prescribes.  Another item for free.
  3. At Christmas we visited my husband’s aunt and she gave us a bag of stuff as we were leaving.  He left it in the trunk and I forgot about it until Sunday.  We found a couple boxes of dental chews for the dogs.  Another expensive item given to us for free.
  4. I only needed to spend $14.40 on groceries this week.  Most of that was for produce, butter and sugar.
  5. I was given a bag of rhubarb that a coworker still had in freezer from last spring.  I can’t wait to make something delicious with it.

  1. Great frugal living, I love handing things around when I can. Have you ever tried goat milk soap( not the crap sold in stores) for your eczema. We are blessed to have a lady who makes it here in Aus, Lots of people buy it especially those with eczema it clears it up. The flower garland is so beautiful.
