Last Weeks Frugal Accomplishments

The frugal updates for the week are:

*52 Week Savings Plan:  Ok, so I have finally allocated money towards this savings plan for the first two weeks of February.  I set aside $21 for week 5 and $19 for week 6 increasing my previous balance of $10 by $40 for a grand total of $50.00!

*Christmas Jar of Change:  The previous balance in the jar of change was $46.45.  After finding some change in the laundry room and a bit more in my purse I get to add $3.55 to the jar.  This will result in a grand total of $50.00!

(Hey, lookie there, between the two savings plans I have set aside a total of $100 and I am just getting started!)

*Favorite Frugal Accomplishments:

-I had TWO days of NO spending! (Please remember that last week I was thrilled to have just one day of zero spending).

- I have been fighting some icky crud by drinking lots of water, getting plenty of rest and taking some master tonic.  Frugal yet effective ways of eliminating crud.

-I really stuck to the menu plans and they helped me resist spending money on convenience foods.

It is all becoming easier, more natural and my most frugal child, Christian, has recognized my efforts and commended my efforts.  That is a huge accomplishment!
