This week seemed to go by quickly. We were very busy at the beginning, perhaps that is why. Sometimes I find that when we are busy on Monday and Tuesday it can really throw me for a loop. This week we managed to stay the course! I have been working on some new habits and bringing back old ones that I hope are making a difference.
Last week I mentioned I had done some research on reducing our cable cost. Well no sooner did I write that when our new bill arrived- with an increase of $35- OUCH! Looks like we’ll be moving a bit faster on figuring it out.
On Sunday we had a wonderful party for my 4 year olds birthday. Our families were very generous. You can read my tips for saving on birthday parties here. I saved all the gift bags to put in my stash.
There were lots of veggies leftover from the party. None of them went to waste including the tomatoes. I roasted them up and they were delish! Recipe here.
I accepted a bag of clothes for my boys. There was a winter coat in the next size up. Score!
I skipped the grocery store this week and we ate from our pantry and freezer. The only food purchases were a few stock up items, veggies and chicken breast from BJ’S and Sam’s Club. I spent 53.09 bringing my grocery total for this month to 241.24. This leaves me with 258.76 for the remainder of the month.
I exercised 5 out of 7 days! I did not however drink enough water. Need to work on this.
What did you do to save money last week?
