Frugal Friday File 2017, week 22...


Successes:
1.  I worked two days this week, and at a branch close enough to come home for lunch each day.

2.  Payment for magazine article went into my account this morning.

3.  Starting now to plan an autumn vacation to be an enjoyable and relaxing experience while remaining frugal.

4.  Employer group health insurance coverage.  So thankful for it.

5.  Listening gratefully as Carey explains how his old, damaged lawnmower with vibration/rust damaged bolt holes can probably continue its usefulness by his turning the motor 180 degrees, bolting it into the housing in an alternate position, reversing the wheels...and that's where I kind of lost focus.  But I know that he is willing to put in some work and make do instead of sending something to the landfill and spending money on a new one.  Sigh...love that man.

Frugal From the Kitchen This Week:
Saturday:  * hamburgers
Sunday:  Sunday family dinner at Kasey's
Monday:  *Schlotzky sandwiches
Tuesday:  Roast w/ Drop Dumplings, green beans, carrots
Wednesday:  chili dogs
Thursday:  Homemade Pizza
Friday:  ???

(*not-frugal takeout or dinner out)

  1. Sounds like you've got a good man there! So many things these days are manufactured cheaply and they're not worth fixing.. just throw away and buy a new one. A man who's willing to "refurbish" and keep using the old one is worth keeping! Lol

    1. Sorry I was so long in responding to comments on this post.

      I've said it before, and I'll say it again: A handy hubby is VERY frugal! :)

  2. I need to plan an enjoyable, relaxing getaway for Vic's 50th birthday this September. With me not working, cruising is on the table anymore. Some friends of ours spent a weekend at a winery not too far away, will have a look at that.

    1. I'm happy to have the luxury of not working, but it does cut deep into the fun money, doesn't it? I moan that when you work there's no time for anything fun, and when you don't there's no money for anything fun. :)

      I hope you come up with a great way to celebrate Vic's 50th!
