Frugal Confessions Friday – Frugal Living

by on January 18, 2013 · 6 comments

Hello Frugal Confessions Readers!

Here is my confession of the week:

I had all kinds of great entertainment and fun for very cheap last weekend, which was sorely needed after being stuck inside for most of Christmas break with the flu. On Saturday I hung out with my blogging friend Crystal from Budgeting in the Fun Stuff and a bunch of her friends. I played a video game for the first time in years, and then a group of us played the board game Power Grid. Lots of fun! On Sunday I woke up early (without an alarm clock) and went to the $5 community hot yoga class at YogaOne Studios. Then we went to Paul’s parent’s house for a Sunday family dinner (and football). On Monday night I went to my first local meet-up of a Stitch N’ *itch club for free.

The total cost for a weekend full of fun and entertainment was only $20. Hurrah!

What is your confession of the week? I’d love to hear it!

I went to yoga this week after a long layoff. It was $6 and it was really worth it. It reminded me how much I like yoga and I feel a lot more centered.

Hi Joe! Happy Friday.

That is fantastic–plus I am sure it gave you a little time to yourself from the little guy:).

Fun doesn’t have to mean expensive, that sure was a cheap weekend. Mmm confessions? I have been cutting on my BF’s meat portions progressively to save on groceries. He says he feels like he hasn’t eaten if there is no meat on the table but little by little I am reducing his portion and increasing sides and veggies. So far, no complains.

It definitely doesn’t have to be expensive!

What a great idea–changes are much more palatable if they are made gradually. Plus, it sounds like the added bonus is a healthier diet. Way to go!

Yoga is my favorite workout and one of my favorite things to do to relax. I used to go to a yoga studio that was donation based, which also made it a frugal activity as well!

Hey Shannon!

Yoga makes the world go ’round:). Well, at least my world.
