Frugal Five And One Frugal Fail

Well, not every day is a frugal day and yesterday was not a frugal day for me and I’m not happy about it!  I succumbed to temptation and ordered delivery!  I had been craving a piece of pizza for days and I fell into that craving face first!

This bothers me for multiple reasons.

  1. I spent $16 on delivery!!!
  2. It tasted like crap and in no way was it good for my body.
  3. I spent $16 on delivery!!!

But, one must get over it and learn from her mistake and move on.

Friday’s  Tuesday’s Frugal Five:

  1. I’ve started sorting through items I have around the house that I no longer want or need.  I really want to declutter and get rid of all the unnecessary items we have.  I’m going to try my hand at selling on the local Facebook page and craigs list.  Junk out, money in 🙂
  2. My parents came to visit Sunday for dinner.  We had a lovely grass fed beef pot roast that I had bartered for, roasted potatoes and carrots, deviled eggs and a huge pan of cornbread.  The company was lovely, the meal was healthy and delicious and I fed 4 people for well under $10  This is why I really struggle with my frugal fail that I mentioned above.   (must… move… on…)
  3. Our lovely daughter-in-law came to visit (from Georgia) this weekend and she helped me cook the lovely Sunday dinner.  We enjoyed each other’s company without having to make plans, make reservations or go shopping.  She even went with the Z Man to deliver a load of wood that he had sold and we had a great time visiting!
  4. Saturday the Z Man and I had a date night… we rented a movie, had a bottle of wine and ate leftover meatloaf at home.  It was the best date night!  I’m not going to lie, sometimes I do think I’m a bit odd because I’d rather stay at home with my husband and just do us instead of going out and being around a bunch of people we don’t know eating mediocre food (at best) and paying too much for it.  We are homebodies, it’s what we like and it works for us.
  5. I swept all my leftover money from the cash envelopes into savings last week and I’ll continue that process every week, even if it’s only a small amount.  Pennies make dollars Y’all!  Keep on keeping on with the frugalness and be gratefull that spending $16.00 for stupid delivery does in fact bother the crap out of me.    😉  Ok, I’ll not mention it again.

Tell me what frugal fun or frugal fail have you had.

Till next time,

Lori
