So starting in January we particpating in both The Compact, and Frugal woods uber Frugal month. Buy nothing new except food, gas etc, is the basis of the Compact. It should be really fun to think outside the box. We actually had our first challenge this week. Our dishwasher stopped draining. It is almost 20 years old . This has happened before and we knew something was stuck but could we ( oh I mean HE) get it out. Visions of ordering from Home Depot danced in my head and it was not a pleasant thought to think of having to charge $500 for a dishwasher. Especially since we’re doing the The Compact ( nothing new) and trying to be Uber Frugal. But as I was leaving the gym, the text on my phone from my sweet and amazing husband said…”Fixed”!!!!! yeah…. and Whew that was a close call. I’m not really one for hand wash dishes day after day. Some are Okay and I get the Zen of it, but for sanitation and sterilizaton, give me a dishwasher.
I’m acutually, really looking forward to this challenge. I always need a goal or multiple and it keeps me focused.
Today is just a home day with chores. B needs to get cat food and a prescription. That’s it.
I’m going to work on lists for Christmas dinner and breakfast. I’m going back to our traditional lasagna. I’ll do a pan of cheese and a pan of meat lasagna.Then a salad, garlic bread and that’s it.
Christmas breakfast will be cinnamon rolls and a breakfast sausage casserole. Plus one just with green chilies and cheese for the veggie:)
Dinner tonight is Baked cod in parchment, couscous, and a salad. Grilled tofu for the vegetarian.
One thought on “Going Uber Frugal with Frugalwoods.”
I love your plans! Can’t wait to follow along. I’m trying to make my 2017 budget as frugal as possible & really examining all of our options. It’s a nice challenge during these cold days – they make you want to snuggle up with a cup of tea & a book. We are trying so hard to work a Tahoe ski trip into our January plans, but we’ll see. It always makes me think of you! 🙂
