Here are our frugal wins for the week:
- Made burritos & muffins for the freezer over the weekend
- Prepped lunch stuff on Sunday evening, for the majority of kid lunches. This was mostly a desire to clean out the freezer, but is also useful for food prep
- Both kids wore repurposed Halloween costumes, costing us zero out of pocket
- No meals out this week. We continue cooking on weekends, and eating leftovers during the work week
In non-frugal news, we changed our flights for the holidays to leave on Friday vs Sunday. I'd expected to be on call for work, but plans changed & M really wanted to have more days at our vacation house. It was $500 for the flight changes, although we did receive a $150 credit for future travel, as well as 20,000 miles credited back, which makes it more like a $150-200 adjustment. We're looking forward to additional time on the Oregon coast, and taking advantage of our home there.
More to come shortly, as I work on our November goals, and we also start to align on our 2019 savings & spending priorities!
How about you? Any frugal wins to report?
