5 Things I Did That Were Frugal This Week

1.  Caught a charge that didn't belong to us in our checking account. Went right to the bank and had it fixed.  Turns out my hubby's debit card info was some how stolen.  I was the 3rd person who had been in that day whom had false charges appear in their accounts from the same stores in the same area.  BTW: my false charge was to the tune of $221.55.

2. Found Kid #5 a pair of black and brown dress shoes for $6 total!

3. Took pictures of several items to list on the facebook garage sale sites in my area.

4.  Ate leftovers and made lunches with alot of them

5.  Re purposed a shirt of my husbands into a skirt for Kid #5


  1. Eek! That's great that you caught that charge! Can you imagine someone not figuring that out?! Scary stuff!!

    Great week! :)

  2. Which means there is a ring among merchant employees, they will be caught. They think it is a slick deal and it would be if they were far away but they are not. They are stealing locally.

  3. Our info on a credit card got stolen this week too:( Good thing we are frugal and like to check our accounts regularly, right?:)

  4. That happened to us, too! We were had over $700 in purchases to a Target store in Chicago....3 days before we left for China! Ugh! Thankfully our bank took care of it and had the money back in our account that same day!
