My Frugal Week

by - February 01, 2020

Last week I didn't post a Frugal Friday blog as I was recovering from the flu. I'm feeling much better than I was then, but still have a lingering cough. 

This week I was able to work three days and made sure to rest the other two days. Of course, I packed lunches and drinks all week. 

We made it to the end of January and I'm happy to report that we did not eat out in January. My daughter also had a successful no spend month. 

This week we ended up pet sitting for a friend. She took Bailey out to eat as a treat when she picked up her dog. 

I had an abundance of oranges this week and made some fresh orange juice. It was delicious and a very rare treat. 

I took a package of hot chocolate mix that we were gifted for Christmas and mixed it up and put it in a pitcher in the fridge. We will drink it better being cold than we would hot. We've been making plenty of hot tea such as echinacea and elderberry as well with the sickness in the house.

We spent $157 on groceries in January, but mostly we ate from the pantry and freezer. We avoided any food waste. For breakfast several morning we served cinnamon raisin bread and blueberry bagels.



We put together a Mary Engelbreit puzzle this week for free entertainment. There was one piece of the puzzle missing if you can tell from the photo. If you look under the arm of the girl in the red sweater you'll see it. Clicking on the photo helps too. 

I sold a couple of items on eBay this week and reused packages for those rather than buy new ones. 

My bangs were getting too long for my taste, so I used my hair cutting scissors and trimmed them. 

We have some cold days and some warm days, so we've only had to turn the heat on an as needed basis. 

What did you do this week to save money?
