5 frugal things

5-frugal-things

 

Here is a quick list of the 5 frugal things I did this week.

  1. Hemmed 3 pairs of dress pants.  This was a HUGE pain, but well worth it!  I am starting a new job in a few weeks that requires some major dressing up on my part.  I splurged on some new clothes a few weeks ago but tackled the hemming of the pants myself this week.  Estimated savings $30.
  2. Vegetarian eating (well actually vegan).  We are doing a 21 day daniel fast which is basically a vegan diet. Our grocery bills have been nice and low thanks to this.
  3. Washing my old diaper bag!  This might not save me money now, but maybe in a year or two ,I’ll be thankful to have a nice like new diaper bag to use!
  4. deciding to keep my old phone.  I’v been having some issues with my iphone and was thinking of upgrading.  Ultimately I decided to hang on to it and wait until it completely bites the dust.
  5. no take out!  We normally do takeout or conveinence meals once or twice a week.  But thanks to our danielfast we have been cooking and preparing all our meals at home.
