Here is another weekly installment of Living Frugally where I share my frugal accomplishments for the past week. Be sure to share your frugal successes in the comments!

I had a late work night this week, so I used up some bananas and cold brew coffee to make a coffee-banana smoothie. It was a nice consolation treat to myself for working so late!

I re-watched Brené Brown’s Call To Courage show on Netflix. Even re-watching it—well worth my time. 

This week we ate Tofu Stir-Fry, frozen pizza, grilled cheese, and nachos for dinner at home. 

This Fascinating Adventure

Living Frugally—Week 19

A cast iron skillet on a stove-top, filled with sautéed tofu, broccoli, zucchini, and green beans.
Yum! This fed us both for 3 day!

We also packed all of our lunches as usual this week. The only exception was, my mother-in-law stopped by my husband’s work this week, as she was in the area. They were able to go out for lunch and have a nice time. Well worth any money spent!

Continued to read a new book from the library. Also listened to a couple new audiobooks from the library on my commute. 

Picked up a few things from my Buy Nothing group on Facebook. There were a few articles of clothing, and a plastic pumpkin that I will store to use as a Fall/Harvest decorative item. 

We did a significant amount of yard-work this week. We pruned our shrubs out front and I weeded my raised garden bed to prep for the planting we will do soon. We are looking at some pre-Memorial Day sales to purchase the plants and mulch needed for our flower garden. 

This week I worked out only once, courtesy of my BeachBody app (I am not an affiliate of BeachBody, just love their product).

I also used our foam roller a significant amount this week. Especially after weeding our garden, it was a nice way to massage out all the kinks and practice self-care!

Spent a significant amount of time outdoors this week. Some of it was spent doing yard-work. Other times, I just hung out on our porch with a cup of coffee and relaxed. I definitely want to make a point of doing that more often!

My mom came over to hang this week, and she offloaded a ton of sewing stuff to me. This included patterns and other odds and ends that I will enjoy using for various craft projects. 

My mom also helped me mend several articles of clothing. Most were minor repairs. These clothes had been piling up for a few months, and now that they are mended it is like having an infusion of new clothes back in our closets! 

Listened to several podcasts this week. Most of the podcasts I listen to are financial related, but this week I got into Oprah’s Super Soul Conversations. So nourishing for my spirit. 

What are some of your frugal accomplishments for this past week?
