I am helping with an adult program at our church called MONEY MATTER$. To help those of you who are looking for information about saving on groceries, you may also want to take a look at the Grocery Shopping and Menu Plan post.

Here are some things we did to live frugally this week...with an item or two from the week before, when I didn't do a Frugal Accomplishments post:
I signed up on a facebook promotion for some free applesauce squeeze packs - they will make nice on-the-go snacks for Daughter.
We borrowed books, media and a book on CD from the library, free of charge.
We used firewood (which we get for free) and our wood stove to heat our home so that our furnace rarely kicked on. In conjunction with heating with wood, we swept the chimney to keep everything functioning properly. It's a dirty job, but not a difficult one. (but really, really dirty!)
Husband cut up some more wood so we can use it over the next couple months.
I made some hats using the knitting loom and yarn that I had in only small amounts. I gave them to friends.
I accepted some hand-me-over clothing from a friend. Several items fit me and there were some I was able to give to another friend who is a different size. The rest were taken to a thrift store.
I completed a couple of surveys and earned $6.
It's a short list this week, but I'm still recovering from the holidays. How are you doing with frugality? What have you done to save? Leave a comment so we can learn from you! :)
