I've scored some great bargains at the thrift shop and yard sales this summer. What I have not done is make jam and jelly like I usually do each summer. We especially like Harvest Peach. I do hope I get another chance to find a good deal on some kind of fruit before summer's over.
~ I received a new book in the mail to review for Bethany House. It's called $10 Great Dates. As a book reviewer, it was free to me in exchange for a review.
~ I signed up to review a movie called Holy Ghost.
~ I took a box and a bag of things to the Salvation Army. I also threw out two bags of stuff that I found while decluttering. How is that thrifty? I bought myself about three cubic feet of real estate for the price of some time and decisions! Just think how much houses cost per square foot!
~ We stopped by a little thrift shop in a nearby town and bought two shirts and a pair of sunglasses for $1.50.
~ We borrowed hundreds of dollars worth of books from the library for free.
~ Family movie night at church. It was Heaven is for Real. The movie was free. All five of us ate hot dogs, nachos, and popcorn with M & Ms for about $15. Not bad for a night on the town with the family. Yes, we could have been more frugal, but it's our family's big outing each month.
Well, that's all I can think of. Yes. It's a very very very short list. I hope to get back to sharing each week and recording my frugal feats as I go. It's great inspiration to be busy about being thrifty.
What have you done this week? What are your plans for next week? I'd love to have you "talk back". I won't tell your momma, I promise!
