Frugal Friday

Frugal Friday has moved to http://www.lifeasmom.com/
(i wish i new how to put the big button up-anyone?)

I don't feel super frugal today, but I have been looking for more ways to cut expenses and save.

-I think we're going to get rid of the cell phone! I rarely use it and have kept it for emergencies. Before for you think we've totally lost it we do plan on carrying a prepaid. We have one laying around and it will cut our cell expenses from $400 a year to less than $200. That's a nice little savings.

-We're also changing our insurance carrier. The savings should be apx $60 a month. We would never have done this if our current carrier hadn't been leaving our state.

-Buy fresh in bulk and can it. Look at the fresh "penaponyas"!
See yesterday post www.4sweetsisters.blogspot.com/2009/03/jalapenos.html


I love to create and reuse and I think that's what's helped me never to feel "poor" when we're hunkering down and paying down!

Have a great day!
