|Insulating the chicken coop|
~I mended quite a few pairs of jeans and other clothes too.
~We picked up a bunch of new books to read at the library. We were also able to donate a box of old books there which made me feel good and helped to clean out our house.
~Jonathan has been enjoying his robotics club. He had a meeting and a scrimmage this week and all of this is free to us because businesses sponsor the clubs. He is learning and having fun and that is pretty neat.
~One day we ran errands and were going to be out over lunch. I thought about packing a lunch but then remembered that Papa Murphy's pizza had given me coupons for free pizzas to give to my kids when we went on a tour their last winter. So the kids each got a free pizza and I bought one for just $3. It was a fun and pretty inexpensive treat.
~Ken and I enjoyed a date by going to a hockey game with complimentary tickets that Ken got for advertising his business at the game.
~I needed to get our piano tuned and after checking a bit found a tuner that was only charged around 1/2 of the price of the tuner that I had used before. This man was also really fun for the kids to have hear. More on that later. I was happy to save about $50!
~I needed new bobbins for my sewing machine and I remember that I might have some points that transferred into a gift card because I had liked/shared the store's facebook page and so when I went in I asked about that. I did end up having over $20 credit that they gave me on a gift card. That was more then enough to get bobbins. That was pretty fun!
~I cut my kid's hair (and need to do Ken's soon too).
|Megan having fun doing some hammering|
~ We have made several meals in ways so that we could use up leftovers and not waste anything.
~ We have used scrap paper (such as junk mail that has a blank side or other paper that we get with a blank side) for drawing, working math problems, lists and so forth.
What frugal fun have you had lately?
