Our frugal activity was babysitting our two oldest grandchildren while their parents took the new baby to their game night. Hey, at least it got us out of the house on Saturday night, cost-free! And the bonus? They have a big-screen high-def TV and I could actually see the video we were watching. emoticon

Not exactly a frugal weekend planned. Someone is giving us a wood-burning stove, but we have to build a reinforced floor for it before it can be delivered. Still, construction counts as exercise, doesn't it?

Experience is a hard teacher. She gives the test first and the lessons afterwards.

Housework done imperfectly still blesses my home.

I need to take my husband's car in for an oil change, but I have a coupon, and I will be paying in cash, so no added debt. Other than that, we've declared this a Board Game Weekend, and we will be staying home to do that, watch movies together, and maybe do a family book time also.

it takes courage to push yourself to places you have never ben before

to test your limits

to brake through barriers

I plan to discover a new walking path at a park I've never been to before.
I really am excited!

I am looking forward to the weekend and coming up with frugal plans for the kiddos. Planing on trying not to spend any money myself. if hubby wants to take me out I would say no though LOL. SO what are you going to do that is enjoyable and frugal.

Me I am going to .........

Make salt dough for my son to make a bowl with. His clay one he made at school broke and I am not going to buy clay.

After he does his chores I am going to see if I can repair and old bike for him to ride on.

I am going to finally sit down and learn to embroider. at least I am going to sew the tea towel for that project.


Your turn
