It just recently occurred to me that I haven't bought any clothes yet this year, which is a record of sorts for me, although the minimalists in the group may shake their heads in disbelief. I've also had 2 extra WFH/snow days in the past 2 weeks, so that saved me bus/train fare.
We really need to invest in some home improvements this year, so we're trying to keep a tighter rein on non-essential spending.
Well here's an un-frugal for you. We had come in well within budget on groceries yesterday, but today we needed to run out for carrots and celery for the chicken stew DH is making. Well carrots and celery and just a few other things somehow added up to $25! I reviewed the receipt and the bag of grapes I bought for healthy snacking were almost $9 - yikes! On the plus side, we have convinced ourselves that these are the most delicious grapes EVER, and we are committed to not wasting a single one.
