Frugal Friday 38

Happy Frugal Friday!

Here is how we saved money/spent money wisely/made extra money creatively this week:

- Our friends, the Love Family, gave Annabeth a new camping chair. They had purchased it for their daughter but it was too small so it came to our house. Annabeth loves it. Thank you!

- We sold the Disney Princess table and chairs that were in Annabeth's room. They came to us from Kati and Elli as Jenn cleaned things out before their move to SD. We have enjoyed having them but the table is not sturdy enough to do schoolwork on and we have many other chairs. When the new camp chair came this week we knew it was time to let the others go. I put it on our Facebook Garage Sale site and sold it in less than 20 minutes. Made: $15 for Jenn

- We VOTED in our Local Primary Election. It is free fun and our civic duty.

- Mark was off work for Primary Election Day so he and Annabeth planted flowers for the front porch.

These two love to do projects together!

- Mark and Annabeth are working on refinishing a table for our schoolroom. It was a gift from Mark's aunt but after sitting in storage for a bit it needed refinished. Mark sawed the legs off because the table was quite tall. It is now a nice size that Annabeth can either stand or sit to work at. Mark also let Annabeth pick out new paint colors and painted it beautifully for her.

- After last week's post, a college friend and reader, Lauren, asked us if we would like to meet her and the girls she nannies at a new park. We met the three of them as well as another nanny and set of girls at the Zionsville Lion's Park for an afternoon of fun. We enjoyed a picnic lunch and hours on the playground. We look forward to playing again!

We hope you all have a had a fun and frugal week as well.

We also hope that you voted in your Local Primary Election. We were saddened to read in our Wednesday paper that less than 10% of registered voters in our county voted. Please vote!!

Happy Savings to All!
