Frugal Living

Frugal Friday

Ugh, we are hemorrhaging money this week.  Between college tuitions, medical bills and the general day to day expenses of living, things feel tight.  We did have a few wins though that helped.

  1. I have a friend who is in marketing.  She asked me to do a phone interview regarding COVID.  Super simple and I scored an Amazon gift card.
  2. I used the gift card to buy a Brita water filtration pitcher.  By doing this, I can cancel our water cooler.  We are currently paying $125/month for drinking water.  I have had enough of that.
  3. I took my daughter and son off of our auto insurance, effective 8/15.  Our auto insurance didn’t go down much, but our Umbrella policy was cut in half!
  4. We needed new smoke detectors.  My husband used the birthday coupons he received from our local hardware store to offset the cost.  Two detectors for $8/each.
  5. I canceled the print edition of our local newspaper. We rarely ever read it. Waste of money.  Waste of resources.

What did you do this week to save some money?
