Weekend Recap

August 17th, 2009 at 01:46 pm

Yay! My second frugal weekend was a success. I think it's getting easier -or maybe I've just had a run of good luck!

Total for the weekend? $70.00.

I am on my own with the kids this week, so I headed to Wal*Mart, coupons in hand, for frozen veggies and easy to make semi-prepared meals. I know the semi-prepared meals aren't the cheapest option, but for us, they are more practical this week. Total grocery bill for the week (including two lightsticks): $70.00.

The kids played in the backyard and their wading pool, and Saturday evening's entertainment was "Return of the Jedi," (DVR'd from a week ago) and two light sticks. Sunday we headed off to the grandparent's house for lunch, and the central AC.

We are on-track for a great frugal week!

    Congrats! Groceries and a couple of lightsticks seems like very reasonable weekend spending. I tend to buy some of the convenience foods when my husband is away, too. Grilled cheese is easy and inexpensive. The kids love it and I usually do, too.

    I agree, $70 for groceries and light sticks seems very reasonable. It gets easier! Congratulations on a great frugal weekend. /
