Frugal Friday 42

Happy Frugal Friday!

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

- I had seen a neat idea for a front door greeting on pinterest and my friend Sarah had painted one on her front door so I have been wanting to do something similar. I was wandering at Dollar Tree and found a Welcome sign with sweet saying for our door. Pretty for just $1.

May all who enter as guests, leave as friends

- As we redid the school room we moved a wall decoration that we did not have room for anywhere else. I put it on our county's Facebook garage sale site. Made: $10

- Our family enjoyed the morning at Touch a Truck. For just $5 we were able to look at lots of trucks, tractors, and Annabeth's favorite the yellow school bus. The $5 raised money for Beats for Bristol - a group that provides support for families suffering the loss of an infant through miscarriage or infant death.

 Checking out the inside of Franklin Fire Truck 22

- We enjoyed Camp Lakeview's Open House on Sunday. We attended the church service in the morning and then enjoyed cookout lunch. Annabeth enjoyed the horse rides and playing on the tire playground. What a fun (FREE) day with old friends!

- Annabeth is now potty trained! WOOHOO! We are down to two diapers a day - one at nap time and one for bedtime! Praise the Lord!

- Even though she is potty trained I still want to have some swim diapers to meet the city pool requirements and to make sure we don't have any accidents in friends' and family members' pools. The only brand Annabeth can wear came in a package of 12/$12. Eep! While shopping for those I found a cloth version for $9.99. I used a $5 off coupon and so we can swim accident free all summer for $4.99 PLUS I can sell it when we are done! 

- Tuesday evening we helped Luke and Cassidy move apartments. (Their first one, which just Luke has been living in until the wedding, apparently had a very strong odor of smoke that they have not been able to get rid of) Mark's parents came and helped as well and brought dinner. They left all the dinner fixings so we split it between the two couples! We each have bread and lunch meat for the week now as well as some lunch meat, chips, and cookies for next week's pre-wedding events. Thank you Brian and Kristi!

- Annabeth and I cut Mark's hair at home. Saved: $12

We had a great week getting ready for the SD Riley's visit, Annabeth's dance recital, and Luke and Cassidy's Wedding. Just 8 days until they are married!

Happy Savings to All!
