Frugal Friday


We are having absolutely wonderful weather right now. I don't know how long it will last, but I am taking advantage of every nice day to get out and walk or stand taking deep breaths on the deck.

I put away my cross stitch a day early as I made a mistake somewhere, and rather than become frustrated, I will find my mistake (counting of course) in a few days.

So what is frugal around here this week.

1.  Added $25.00 to the cash envelope, and $5.40 to the change jars. I still need to add Harvey's small change so will update this next week.

2.  Walked everyday, even the day it rained once the rain stopped.

3.  Only had one spend day again this week.

4.  Redoing menus and adding one more non meat meal every two weeks.

5.  Using up all leftovers, and slowly using all those premade meals up. 

6.  Made a large tossed salad that will last us another day as a side at supper.

7.  I am using up craft supplies and planning our Easter meal. So excited that both boys will be with us. It is actually the first time Kurt has been home at Easter in a number of years.

8.  Talked to both our sons when costs on our plan were free.

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.


  1. How good that while you have enforced leisure the weather is being so kind. Sorry about the frustration with stitching - anyone who does cross stitch has been there and you have my full sympathy!

  2. Good on the savings. Isn't it nice when your kids come home?

  3. Thrilled that both sons will make it home for Easter, due to lockdown restrictions we will be on our own again.

  4. Sounds like a great week, Jackie. How neat that both of your boys will be with you for Easter.

  5. I'm happy to hear your sons will be able to make it home for Easter. The long range looks like this nice weather will be with us through the end of the month at least. Not as warm as it was yesterday (it reached 20C in Regina!) but still daytime temperatures above freezing.

    Take care, stay well!

  6. This beautiful weather makes everything half-way decent again, doesn't it, my friend. Continue on with your good recuperation progress. ~Andrea xoxo
