    Default 2016 What Did You Do Frugal Today

    Continuation from the 2015 thread.
    Bank of America is THE godfather of Hell with Wells Fargo running neck and neck. When the world ends the only things that will be left are cockroaches, Walmart, Wells Fargo and Bank of America. Not necessarily in that order. The order remains to be seen.

    Today
    Off work and haven't left the house. So no gas used.
    Been baking cookies to mail to son in SC for his birthday. Still have to do Angel Food cake. Hope to mail tomorrow along with their Christmas stuff. Always late to the party.
    Food ... meals from home. Using mostly what I already had.
    Watching TV, computer and reading for entertainment.
    Nothing new but everything counts.

    stayed home other than transporting DD to and from work. Stayed in the car-we have more groc. than we need now that Ds left.

    No more shopping for anything online for awhile.
    Worked at home cleaning out "corners".

    This afternoon we had our last Christmas exchange. Husband and I took my mom to a restaurant for chicken. Frugal because we had a coupon where your spend 30.00 and get 15.00 off the bill. Had a good meal and a nice visit.

    Today?

    ~ I walked to the store and the bank to pick up meds and deposit money.
    ~ Ate leftovers for lunch and snack.
    ~ Cooked supper from scratch in half an hour flat.
    ~ Other than that I stayed home and planned January, and entered it in our daytimer.
    ~ Also did a quick business income comparison between 2014 and 2015. Hmm...there will be adjustments this year.

    A trick we always use when dining out.....order water.....soft drinks and tea are usually at least $2 and if it's alcohol it's like $7....one or two of those and your bill is sky high.....

    We always drink water, too, unless pop is included with the meal.

    I bought a suitable hunk of fabric yesterday 1/2 price for a dollar at GW to make up a top with a new pattern. That way, I'll know if the pattern fits right before I ruin a more expensive piece of fabric.

    making pitchers of plain tea again. Saves calories and sugar money. Sugar I shouldnt have anyway.

    Free dental visit for DH. 100% coverage gotta love it for cleaning and exam.

    Meal planning again. Came in way under budget from tapping the pantry. Going to lower the groc. budget again

    Had a birthday party for the dog. Got a clearance cake,sales cookies,free busy bones for 4 w/ coupon,and toys 4/$1. and a $3.99 LN blanket at S,A. All in about $15. incl. dinner,cake and toys. So worth it.

    Havent bought any clothes for myself in awhile. Just dont care to. Need to get my 1st haircut this year though.

    Dh will be working from home again. We figure that saves us like $10,000 a year in gas,clothes,shoes,lunches,wear and tear on a vehicle.

    Ya gotta eat.

    Frugally, I put the kibosh on Husby's idea to go to another town to buy dirt. We've been working on the greenhouse all day and I want to get it done this weekend. Not only would we not be working on it (obviously) if we went out of town, but we'd be too tired to work on it tomorrow, too. So there. But if we get done, we might go tomorrow so maybe it's just temporary frugality.

    found pine horse bedding to use for litter $5.79/40# as opposed to $8.98 for 40# of lousy Sams Club clay. Cant wait to try it. Large savings potential.

    Made pancakes w/ cherry pie filling and maple sausage. Fed 3 for a few dollars instead of $30.?

    DH driving himself to the airport. Parking will be reimbursed and some of the gas. Less gas and hassle of driving him there and back 2x for me.
    W/ him gone this week less food money esp. milk.
