5 Things I Did That Were Fugal This Week

1. Made Kid # 5 this dress from an up-cycled tshirt, and other materials I already owned. Free dress and the straps can be changed to different colors also.

2. Made a big pot of fresh green beans ( which I bought local), potatoes ( which needed to be used up), and diced ham from the freezer. There should be enough for at least one dinner, a couple lunches for my hubby and then a freezer dinner also.

3. Sold something small out of my garage and made $5. Every little bit helps.

4. Made Kid #1 a birthday cake completely from scratch using items I already had.

5. Took deviled eggs to my family reunion. I already had all the items on hand to make them. They were a big hit and I did not have a single one left :)

    1. Thanks Lena! Looks like I will be making some soon. Kid # 5 is going to be in a leg cast for the whole summer :(
