Frugal Friday

Another wild week, but there were a few frugal wins to report:

  • Drove our electric car to work, & charged for free
  • Use eBates to make an Amazon purchase that was a gift
  • Promptly filed an expense report, as part of the spending was out of pocket
  • Got home from a track meet at 7:00 pm yesterday, and was really tempted to stop for takeout or something. Instead, stuck to the plan & hustled together a quick dinner of a freezer leftover (for some) & the final chicken leftovers for M.
  • We've made it through the end of the week with no leftover meals in the fridge! (We do still have produce & dairy, but that's part of our normal eating stuff.) I love seeing the fridge empty, as we grocery shop & repeat the cycle on Saturdays.
What about you? Any frugal wins to share?


  1. With the kitchen all kiddie wampus, we've had take out and really unhealthy things. I will be happy to make my own meals again. Turning in the expense reports is pretty key to not letting our wages erode.

    1. Whenever I'm without a kitchen, I realize how critical it is for everything to run smoothly!
