Frugal happenings

It was a great long weekend, & I took the opportunity to prepare for the week ahead & complete a few frugal tasks.

Here's what I accomplished:

  • Made my own hummus vs buying
  • Brought homemade pasta salad & lemon bread to potluck
  • Went to inexpensive local water park vs Great America (savings of more than $80)
  • Made my own smoothie fruit (bought super inexpensive, in season fruit, flash froze & packaged vs buying frozen fruit from Costco)
  • Baked my own bread
  • Listed 2 items on Ebay
  • Cleaned both freezers
  • Took leftovers after date night & used remaining chicken to make 2 lunches
  • Made a big dinner on Friday night, yielding 3 weekend lunches (+1 bonus meal for the week)
  • Cleaned fridge, & made a list of things we need to use
  • Menu planned
  • Maybe a stretch, but brought our own wine to date night :-)

And, there you have it! What about you? What are your frugal accomplishments for the week?
