Frugal Steps and Stumbles


Frugal Steps:

  1. I got a random mailer with a special code to get two free tickets to a show of the Dayton Philharmonic. My friend Jen and I will be seeing their Swingin’ Christmas show with them. My husband would rather eat a live cockroach than sit through a show.
  2. I picked up 10-11 extra hours this weekend when we wouldn’t need child care. I was up until midnight working last night, but I earned a $50 bonus for doing a certain number of our backlogged faxes.
  3. We used our YMCA membership and went to a local park this week.
  4. My mother babysat a few hours while I attended a meeting at one of the kid’s schools.

Frugal Stumbles:

  1. Several fruits/veggies went to the great Compost Bin in the Sky.
  2. I did it because I see it more as a donation to the PTO, but we bought fall mums from our PTO for about three times the price I could get elsewhere.
