1) Instead of buying a new math book for my 13-year-old daughter for next year’s homeschool, I got one FREE from PaperBackSwap.com. It even has the answer key, which I was preparing to have to purchase new. Score! (It’s Saxon math for the curious. I’ve paid $80 for Saxon new.)
2) I ate a bowl of leftover taco salad so it wouldn’t go bad in my fridge.
3) We played at the park today for a couple of hours with friends. We packed lunches so we wouldn’t be tempted by fast food.
4) I made a meal plan based on inexpensive food (I bought a whole chicken instead of parts, planned a few meatless meals, etc).
5) I shopped at ALDI.
