Frugal Living

Frugal Friday

I missed last week’s Frugal Friday because I was pretty hard pressed to come up with anything since I haven’t actually gone anywhere.  But this week, I had some wins.

  1. Our auto insurance company lowered our premium by 25% for April.  That is actually a really nice savings for us, given we have 4 people on our policy, one being a teenager.
  2. I taught myself how to make a sourdough starter.  I am going to make a loaf of bread today, wish me luck.
  3. I used the rinds and other bits to attempt to make pineapple vinegar.  I was bored and wanted to try something new.  I am actually not sure what I will do with the final product.
  4. I am almost out of actual books from the library, so I have decided to take advantage of the free trial for Kindle Unlimited.  The free trial is 30 days, I am hopeful I will only need it for that long.
  5. I have been using Zoom, a lot, to keep in contact with friends and family.  In fact last night was the first meeting of a virtual book club that I started in response to our state’s safer at home order.  It was two hours of laughter and wine drinking.  We meet again in three weeks.  I can’t wait.  Zoom is free to use.

What you have been doing these past several weeks to save money, while being at home?
