Frugal Friday File, week 25...


Successes:
1.  Was sitting at a quarter tank of fuel when I was out and about on Monday.  Saw $2.20 per gallon, but continued on to a station that is usually much lower than competitors, and I was not disappointed.  I filled up for $2.02 per gallon.

2.  Made cards this week using only supplies on hand.

3.  Tuesday's inbox had a notice from Amazon that I have $24.20 credit as a result of anti-trust settlement.  That was a nice surprise!

4.  Somehow I ended up on Etsy looking at earrings.  When I was about to hit 'buy,' I decided to go have a look through my jewelry box instead.  I've gotten out of the habit of wearing earrings, so I was excited to come across some old favorites.  I decided I would wear the earrings I already own for at least a month to evaluate if I 'need' any new ones.

5.  No haircut, no puppy, no fabric.

Keep Tryings:
Oh my goodness,  I resorted to eating out entirely too much this week.  I haven't been to the store since the big refrigerator clean out after the door was left ajar all afternoon last week.  I must make a menu plan and grocery shop.  I need a personal shopper.
