Frugal Friday File 2017, week 17...

1.  My paycheck reflecting the 40 hours worked last week went into my bank account today.  Wowza!  Well, 'wowza' is probably overstating it, but it's been awhile since I worked a full week, so it is nice to see.  

2.  Today is a work day for me as well.  Only one this week, so I enjoyed the time at home.

3.  I completed and submitted an article and photos on Monday morning.  We had a long stretch of overcast and/or rainy days, which delayed the photo taking.

4.  I finally purchased a patio chair.  It seems that I've been waiting forever for the right one to come along.  I finally saw one I liked advertised 'on special' at a retailer and almost purchased it, but did an internet search and found that through Amazon they were $30 less than the 'special' price...and no shipping with my Prime.  Delayed gratification...just in time for it to be too hot to sit outside.

5.  I bought some quilt batting to make a design wall for my craft room.  I'm working on a project that will need careful arranging of pieced squares.  I used a 40% off coupon for the purchase which was a huge help.

  1. I really miss those 40-hour week paychecks - hopefully soon!

    1. When I’m not working I don’t have money to do what I want (spend on crafts); when I am working I don’t have time to do what I want (spend on crafts).

      It’s a catch 22.

  2. A sizeable pay cheque is always a nice boost! :) What are the articles about that you write?

    1. This one was a DIY...basically a tutorial for a summer decorating project. I can't publish here before the magazine comes out. Not sure if I can after or not. Other articles have been organization related.
