Frugal Friday


1.  It has been raining most of the day, which means my flowers and Harvey's veggie garden are getting a free watering, as is our lawn. Love it, the best frugal thing other than having to haul water from our oversized water barrel and lug it around the yard.

2.  From four smallish pieces of leftover ham, I made enough ham salad for at least 4 lunchtime sandwiches. 

3.  Got a cheque from our insurance plan that cuts down what I paid at the dentist by $76.00.

4.  Rolled the collected coins and have $352.00 to help pay for our trip to the family reunion. Should pay for food, gas and give us a bit to spend at the silent auction.

5.  Using what I have now to declutter and tidy the sewing/craft room. The old shop at home first trick.

Everybody have a wonderful evening. 

God bless.


  1. I like that 'the old shop at home'. Mine is bursting at the seams with stuff that needs using.

  2. Another lesson I need to learn, since a number of balls of yarn jumped into my basket at Michaels this week. But it was such a good price!

  3. I love how you save you coins for a trip. Just like I save mine all year for Christmas mad money.

  4. Shopping at home is a great way to go - it's amazing just how often it works. Alas no coins to be had here because since covid hit we've been paying for everything using our debit card. The stores for the longest time didn't want to handle cash (probably still don't) so we simply got out of the habit of using it.
