Frugal Friday

I have been a bit preoccupied over the last couple of days. Not sure why, probably I just felt I needed to get a few things completed. 

Also I have been spending time sending texts back and forth to our sons. We are trying/hoping that things do not come to a head as far as more restrictions before Christmas. 

I have also had a couple of Zoom meetings on Ecumenism that it was necessary to attend. I do believe that my calendar is going to be clear now until at least Tuesday when I hope to do an hours phoning for the parish. I may try and fit another hour or so in at some other point over the week.

Now on to frugal happenings around here.

1.  I still have not purchased fuel for the vehicle for just over a month. There is just under half of a tank left in the vehicle as well. Wonder if I can stretch this out until the end of this month.

2.  Combining errands to save said fuel. Only doing things such as shopping one day a week, and paying bills online.

3.  Saved $21.26 on the grocery bill this week.

4.  Using up all that I can as far as items in the fridge and pantry.

5.  Made a cat bed as a gift for Kris's cat, still have a bit of work to do on it, but it will be finished very soon.

6.  We are getting some free previews on our television right now and I am taking full advantage of watching some movies. It is now I wish I could PVR them, but I can't so I will watch all that I can.

7.  Downloaded some more free novels on my ereader. 

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.


  1. I don't know what is going on with Blogger, I came to check on something from your previous post and saw you had a new one up but it doesn't show up in my reading list. Oh well, I got to read it anyway.

    Sounds like you've had a good week - it's hard to believe Christmas is just two weeks away. I'm assuming your son is feeling better as you're making plans.

    Take care, stay well!

  2. Here in the United States the authorities have told people to STAY HOME for Christmas... but then, out of the other side of their mouths, they talk about always wearing a mask if you go out of your home. I think they know that lots of people won't stay home so they're trying to appeal to them to at least wear a mask inside someone else's house. Our hospitals are full to capacity and just about as many people are dying *per day* as they did on the day our country was attacked on September 11, 2001. I dunno... we're staying home & not having anyone under our roof who doesn't live here. We simply can't let our behavior help contribute to more deaths & sickness. But it sure won't feel like Christmas. *sigh* ~Andrea XOXO

  3. Like you we are using very little fuel in the vehicle as we are staying home more and more.

  4. Not been out much in the car at all. DH has to keep starting it to make sure the battery still works! We are home for Christmas - just the 2 of us. We are not risking anybody round. We will FaceTime family.
