Saving Money on Weekend Plans

May 6th, 2018 at 07:24 pm

Here's how we saved money this weekend:

- Instead of going out to dinner or lunch (which we do have a budget for), we went out for dessert last night! It was a beautiful night and we walked down Canyon Road afterward (like tourists! Ha!). We are saving up money to go out to dinner in Flagstaff when F has her soccer tournament.

- We are having a party for F's grade at school (50 kids and their families); but since I organized it, I decided to do a fun potluck picnic (the school is letting us use the campus) instead of meeting at a restaurant (which other classes have done). This way no one has to pay for meals out for their family (so no one is excluded) and we can play soccer and frisbee, etc. People forget that even though it's a foo-foo private school, not everyone is wealthy, and lots of kids get tuition assistance.

- F and I went to the Farmer's Market yesterday and wandered around looking at everything. We bought a chard plant and a zucchini plant for the garden. I hope they do well! I don't think we'll have another freeze...

    Sure hope you don't have a freeze and hope we don't either. DH had to replant part of his garden. We don't know if it was the frost a day or so after he originally planted it or if the bunnies sneaked in.

    I hope you don't have a freeze, either! It's frustrating! And the bunnies are cute, but ugh... I put mesh under the planter bed to prevent the gophers from coming up.
