Frugal Friday File, week 23...


Successes:
1.  I remembered to take advantage of one of my Amazon Prime benefits and borrowed a Kindle book before last month ended.  Now I need to get it read and returned so I can borrow another this month.

2.  I scheduled a day of work next week.

3.  Started making Christmas gifts.  

4.  Entertained girlie by printing free coloring pages from the Web.

5.  I had an errand to run that put me across the street from one of the girls' favorite treat shops, so I invited them to come along.  What's frugal abut that, you ask?  Well, I happened to have a $10 gift certificate to said treat shop in my wallet.  Everybody's happy!

Keep Tryings:
1.  Splurged on a birthday gift but it was a good purchase.

2.  Must tighten belt, as we had to replace all four tires on my car today ($$$), and next month will bring insurance premium due ($$$)

Saturday:  chalupas
Sunday:  leftovers
Monday:  leftovers
Tuesday:  Jicama Shrimp Salad
Wednesday:  *burgers

  1. car repairs here this week put us a little out of joint. Actually it was a good time of year for it, they usually break down when it's -20c out.

    1. I am SO lucky that the hubs is a great mechanic. It has saved us a ton of repair bills over the years. Now if he could just learn how to make tires. :)
