Today's Frugal Thoughts

June 11th, 2015 at 02:50 pm

Frugal things and thoughts for today:

- I grouped my errands yesterday to save both mental energy and gasoline.

- One of those errands was a trip to the library. I haven't bought a book in ages.

- One of the books I picked up was Marie Kondo's The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up. I have to confess, I think most of the book is ridiculous. But a friend who I ran into last night said that's because I'm already tidy. There was one thing in the book that was eye-opening. She said don't think about what you want to get rid of, but rather what you want to keep. I do think there are many fewer things that I really WANT in my life than what I actually have. She says to start with clothes, so I may try that. I wear the same clothes every day.

- F requested Chinese food for her birthday dinner as well as lemon pie. I made both myself which I'm certain saved a lot of money!

- I have a meeting set up to sell a blanket on Saturday morning. That'll be a nice snowflake.

    I just read that book because a friend was raving about it and I thought the same thing. What's the big deal? It's not earth shatteringly original or particularly well written. But, it did get me thinking about cleaning and clearing, and I did!

    Glad it was a library book! And ps - there is NO way I'm going to fold my clothes in little upright cubes.

    I could never make myself take everything out. But I love the folding. Maybe I'm wacky, but it looks so nice and is super easy to maintain in DD's room.

    I'm on the wait list for the book - but I found its available as an ebook on Hoopla - have too many ebooks as it is just now though.
