Frugal Friday 23

Happy Frugal Friday!

Here is what we did to save money/spend money wisely last week:

- Mark and I saw a Saturday afternoon showing of Hunger Games: Catching Fire. By going before 5 pm we were able to get the matinee price. Saved $6.50

- Before our movie we shopped at a Marshall's store. Mark went in begrudgingly but because it was date day, he went in. He ended up finding a new pair of New Balance tennis shoes for just $31.00! Saved: $44.00

- We enjoyed a FREE day at the Indianapolis Children's Museum thanks to MLK Jr. Community Day. Saved: $53.50

Us girls on our "beach vacation" - playing in the sand tables

- We enjoyed a trip to The Commons free playground in Columbus. Great fun on a day when it was -15 degrees outside with the windchill! Brrr!!!

Total Saved: $104.00

What have you been doing to save money this week?
What frugal fun have you been having in the extreme cold?

Happy Savings to All!

Fun ways to save! Good job.

My favorite savings this week was finding some ice skates for $3 at a thrift store. The new ones were at least $60 and so finding used was so nice! I had been trouble finding used as I have large feet but we decided to check at some stores while out of town and I scored!

What a great find!

Sporting goods are usually hard to find second hand - especially shoes or skates!

What a blessing that they had just the right ones! :)
