5 Things I Did That Were Frugal This Week

1. Used a fantastic coupon deal to go to the local water park. $14 total for 4 of us, it would have normally been $29.

2. Took snacks and water bottles with us to the water park so that we didn't spend money at the concession stand.

3. Did some redecorating using items I already had

4. Watched movies and read books from the library

5.  Accept a gift of some free food items from a friend! Thanks Tonia, it was so nice of you to think of us!


  1. Congratulations on your frugal week!! Sometimes when we are having a rough time it can be difficult to find the positive. A series like this one would definitely help you to remember, even during visits from Murphy, that there is always a positive way to look at things.

  2. Thank you! I usually try to list 5 things every Friday. Sometimes it is easy to think of things and sometimes not.

  3. Great job on the water park! Our water park doesn't allow you to bring food or drink in, but the concessions are part of the reason I go! Can't pass up funnel cake. Thankfully, they are reasonably priced. (Not like an amusement park).

    I've been enjoying the library so much more lately. They have more of a selection of movies and books. No more Saves a bundle, for sure!
