Frugal Friday


Another work week gone by, except I have no work except what is necessary to do around the house. Truth be told I really like retirement especially when it is 35 C out. Much nicer to be in air conditioned comfort.

So what frugal happenings took place on the homestead this past week.

1.  Saved $19.46 on my grocery bills just buying sale items.

2.  Combined errands to save on fuel and wear/tear on the vehicle.

3.  Our property taxes dropped $500.00.

4.  Our car plates and insurance dropped $200.00.

5.  All laundry hung out on the outside lines.

6.  Used all leftovers up either for lunches or as new meals at supper.

Everybody have a wonderful evening. 

God bless.


  1. How unusual to have taxes drop! A good week for you.

  2. Wow, you did well with the property taxes and insurance costs. I haven't checked but I think my property taxes increased again this year.

    I agree about retirement - though we had a/c at work it was always soooo darn cold in there I had to wear a sweater in the summer.

  3. How did you get such a large drop in home taxes?

  4. Wow... you never hear about any taxes falling these days. Yours dropped $500... what a windfall. Good for you folks, Jackie! ~Andrea xoxoxo

  5. How great to save £700 without having to do anything. The best kind of savings if you ask me.

  6. Sounds like a wonderful frugal week, Jackie. The savings on your auto insurance, car plates, and property tax is huge! That’s terrific!

    I hope you have a wOnderful 4th of July!
