I have been trying to be as frugal as possible in order to save as much as I can. Here are my frugal doings for last week:
The back door is terribly drafty. I have been using an old blanket rolled up against it to keep the cold out.
I save our food scraps in an old cool whip container and warm them up a tad and mix it into the dogs food so they get a treat. Plus, it stretches their food just a bit.
I do not like drinking plain water so I have purchased Crystal Light at BIG1F instead of buying soda.
I was able to rent 2 movies from Redbox for free using promo codes.
Downloaded several cookbooks for kindle for pc.
I save water in a pitcher while waiting for it to heat up to add to the dogs' water bowl.
Filled my car up with gas at $2.30/gal. instead of $3.15/gal. because I had $0.85/gal. in fuel perks. It only cost me $28.61 to fill up my tank. Husband was thrilled!
Remind the children to keep lights & gadgets turned off if not in use. I make sure to turn off the outside lights as soon as daylight breaks.
I have been turning the heat off during the day while Alfred is at work and wear a sweater. I turn it back on an hour before he comes home from work.
I have been wanting a nice jacket to wear when we go out. I found a soft black 100% leather jacket at the thrift store for $14.99!
I trimmed my daughter's hair.
How have you saved money this week?
