We also sold an old twin mattress set and we had an old dirt bike part that we had in our garage. Thank goodness for online ads!
I repurposed an old formula tin and an old coffee tin into something useful: canisters to hold our different bags of tea! And all I used was scrapbook paper and labels!
We desperately needed a washer and dryer but seriously lacked the funds. Our previous apartment came with these units, but here in our new place, we were on our own. These fancy schmancy boxes that clean your clothes cost quite a pretty penny, but we lucked out! A friend of a friend of my husband’s was moving and they didn’t need their washer and dryer anymore. They sold it to us for $100 total for both pieces. Score! That, we can fit into our budget!
Having a park within walking distance. This saves money for both my husband and myself. I save gas because I don’t have to drive to the park anymore when I want to take my daughter there. My husband like to play basketball to get some exercise. He no longer has to drive to the nearest basketball court because now our park has one. There really is something to be said about convenience!
What frugal things have you done this past month?
