Happy Thursday! It’s been a busy week. Two of Robert’s friends turned 2 yesterday and another one of my friends had a new baby! Lots of fun non-frugal things to report.
Each week I do a quick roundup of the thrifty and frugal things I’ve been up to. It’s also a good time for me to reflect on my week and figure out how I can save even more money in the future. Here my latest edition of Thrifty Thursday.
Changed up my wreath
I’m still in love with my burlap wreath. This has by far been the best multipurpose wreath I’ve ever had. Yesterday I removed the shamrocks to replace them with Easter eggs.
I love how easy it is to add holiday décor. The shamrocks were put on with Velcro and the eggs are on with wire that I pushed through the burlap.
Another mom’s morning out
I was able to sign up for another $5 MMO through our YMCA. I’m in love with this program!
I dropped off Robert and headed to Target to pick up some last minute items for a birthday present. Instead of spending too much money I was able to buy everything I needed from the clearance racks.
Another successful mom’s morning out! Instead of Starbucks, I spent my “fun money” on clearance crafts at Target. Only spent $3.98 and now I’m home crafting and drinking green tea. No, I’m not being productive during my time away from Robert, but my new clearance chevron paper is really cute. #MMO #momlife #EatDrinkSave #tea #crafts #NotDoingLaundry #alonetime #clearance @target #instablogger #instacraft
Since I spent money on craft supplies, I didn’t get a Starbucks drink. Speaking of Starbucks, a nice man bought my drink for me on Tuesday. Not is a flirty way, he did it because he said he missed his grandkids and he liked talking to Robert while we were waiting in line.
Caught up on my freebie websites
I had a little extra time on Monday during Robert’s nap so I sat down and caught up on all my word of mouth marketing websites. It took my about 20 minutes and I hope it will allow me to get more freebies soon.
After spending $45 over budget last week, I was pretty excited to be right on budget this week. I spent $99.96 on groceries for the week at Trader Joe’s. That even included some pretty flowers! I’m working on a post to walk you through how I spend around $100 each week at the grocery store. It requires a lot of careful planning.
Any thrifty finds to share this week?
