Frugal Friday File, Week 4...


Successes:

1.  Cards made and sent from my stash of supplies.  Nothing purchased.

2.  Cancelled scheduled friend-date for dinner and auction.  It was rainy, I was already in city for mammogram, and didn't want to wait there for hours till meet up or waste gas to come home only to turn around and go back, so I called friend and begged off.  Coming home and crawling under the covers to read was much cozier and way more frugal.

3.  Suffered through a really awful cooking-with-leftovers experiment.  Blech...but on the other hand, no one was hungry afterwards and no $ spent.

4.  Really mild temperatures this winter have made for low heating bills.

5.  I found rolls of my favorite shelf liner tucked away in a cupboard.  Saves me buying any to line the newly painted shelves in the laundry room.  Yea!


Keep Tryings:

1.  Forgot to get cash before my mammogram appointment; wasted $4 in ATM fees using on-site ATM to get cash for parking.

2.  Ordered more quilt fabric.
