Heh, I guess it's 31

August 18th, 2012 at 01:55 pm

31 days of frugal. Since August is a 31 day month, I guess I'll be doing 31 days instead of 30 days. Oh well, it's worth a shot.

Thanks to all that might join me in my daily frugalness! Feel free to comment or post on your own blog what you've done for the day to be frugal.

Yesterday at work we had pizza for lunch. It's getting near the start of classes, so we normally get a few free meals out of it. They ordered a lot of pizza and had leftovers. At the end of the day, they told people to take pizza home--so I took home most of a large "everything" pizza to eat for the next few days. Free pizza!

Spent a bit of money yesterday and today. I seem to not spend any extra money for a while, then once I spend some on a non-essential, it seems to open a dam and I buy a few other things on my want list. Yesterday I bought new headphones for my iphone (mine no longer work clearly). Today new undies, nail polish, bubble bath, a pair of running shorts, and two pairs of pants (admittedly, these came from Goodwill). I'm not spending 100s of dollars, but spent a bit more than if I had just stuck to the basics. Weeee!

I also want to say that a while ago, I was reading an essay where the woman said that she always felt like she could never have "nice" stuff. That she wasn't quite good enough to have nice things. I kinda knew what she meant. I will wear undies until they are in pretty sorry shape, then hem and haw about buying new. I decided to not feel that way and buy them before what I was wearing was falling apart!! Smile It helped that they were on sale!

Can you say "justification?" I can do it all day long!

Frugal:

    Hope you trashed the old undies that the new items replaced. Don't keep discolored, ragged, ugly undies around.

    How sad is it that I didn't even think about going through my drawer and throwing out the old stuff?!? Thanks for your nudge!!
