Unofficially Taking a Modified Uber Frugal Challenge

July 6th, 2017 at 07:23 am

I should have joined the official Uber Frugal Month Challenge, but I did not. I don't believe I have purchased much this month other than groceries. I am going to unofficially join in and keep track the rest of the month. Beyond groceries the only spending I have planned is the following:

-Cake, ice cream and card for my youngest son's birthday next week. Total cost should be no more than $20.

-I am going to the zoo next week. Meijer is sponsoring zoo days for a $1 per person. I will take the grandkids on Tuesday. My oldest son and his wife will be unpacking, so my youngest son will go with me. That means $4 for tickets and whatever parking costs. I will not buy any food, so I am sure the total will be less than $10.

-I am taking my youngest son to the Detroit airport on the 17th. He is going to New Hampshire to visit friends and his half brother for a week. I am off for two days, so I will stay at my parents and visit local friends. My son is paying for the gas, but I am going to allow myself $20 spending money because it is quite likely I will eat out at some point. There is a small chance this trip will not cost me anything if I can find a restaurant mystery shop.

I will do a little spending via mystery shopping this month, but I don't count that as it is fully reimbursed.

I am off today save a couple of leftover edits and two phone shops. It is hot, so I am going to relax and do a bit of housework.

Tomorrow I am going to walk the mall in the morning. Hopefully, I will see you there Merilee!

Other than that, I am trying not to stress over my son and his family on the road. They leave tomorrow morning and will be here by noon on Sunday if all goes as planned. I am super excited!

    Wonderful to take your GKs to the zoo. I loved watching the reactions of DSs as they encountered all the different animals [zoo replicates natural elements where possible, limited bars and cages].

    That sounds very frugal to me!

    That zoo offers sounds like a fabulous one. I'm sure the grandkids will love it.

    Sorry I missed you at the mall. I will only be there intermittently next week. When I go, I am only there between 8:30 and 9:30 for the exercise class on Monday, Wednesday, Friday. Hope we can at least meet for a few minutes one of these days.
