Frugal efforts, nonfrugal week

May 23rd, 2019 at 06:38 pm

This past week wasn’t super frugal due to some fun summer activities, but much appreciated to get away for a couple days! I think road trips are still one of the cheaper ways to vacation though.

Frugal things for the week:
- Saved almost $100 booking through AirBnB instead of using the regular rental website for the same exact place
- Used a travel mug and resisted stopping for snacks on the way there or back
- Used up some odds and ends for dinner after getting back, putting off a grocery store run for another day
- Got seven new books at a free book exchange
- Cancelled Amazon prime. I got this as a 30 day free trial initially, but now was being charged monthly and don’t use it much

Now that the weather has definitely settled into summer territory, I need to sort and box up my winter clothing and go through my box of shorts and T-shirts to figure out what will still work for this year and what needs to be replaced. My go-to black work flats finally fell apart (literally, pieces fell off), and I need a pair of summer-appropriate black heels, but I’m going to inventory and make a list to avoid duplicates. Yard sale season is starting around here.

    Sounds like you were frugal in ways so you didn't have to forego your trip. Bravo!
