1. I sold an outgrown bike.
I used Facebook marketplace and no lie, the bike was picked up and paid for in less than an hour. At full price.
I was so impressed!
2. I sold the girls’ scooters for them.
They used to love these, but they’ve outgrown ’em. So, I listed them on Facebook and they sold too, though not quite as quickly as the bike did!
Of course, I’m giving the money from this sale to the girls, since the scooters were their personal possessions.
For whatever reason, I really hate listing and selling things. So I’m giving myself big gold stars for these first two frugal things.
3. I saved a broken hanger from the trash.
One of my kids broke the bottom part of a hanger. The top was still fine, though!
So I pulled the broken pieces off, use a wire cutter to trim the remaining staples, and used the hanger to hold a shirt, rather than a pair of pants.
4. I saved on a Jersey Mike’s gift card.
I had some credits at Sixth Continent, so I used those to pay for half of a $25 gift card, plus I’m getting $1.75 back in more credits from buying the gift card.
So, this will make for a nice cheap date night in the future.
(You can get a pretty inexpensive $25 gift card when you make a Sixth Continent account through my referral link. The deal is good for first-timers only.)
made dinner last night even though I didn’t feel like it. Also, I inadvertently took the toll-free route to Joshua’s rental. And we ate leftovers for lunch yesterday after church.
