Frugal Friday

Today's entry for Frugal Friday will be short because I am totally involved in our church's 25 Anniversary Celebration which is this weekend. It is so exciting to be a part of planning and making it happen.

Here is something I borrowed from which is a blog that is helping me be more organized. Lori talks about the lessons that we can learn from bees and she says that "Bees bring home only as much as they can carry. They have pollen baskets on their legs that help collect pollen and bring it back to the hive. They do not have Hummers that they can load up at the "Costco of flowers" and bring home excessive amounts of stuff they don't need. They also know exactly what they are shopping for and don't deviate from their lists."

I have talked about the value of making lists when shopping. I must say that making a list and sticking to it is very important in saving money. When I go to Sam's or one of the big shopping places, it is so easy to get side-tracked into buying things I don't need by big displays and enticing items not on my list. Happy shopping (with lists) this weekend.


  1. Lists are a good thing!

  2. Yep! Because I can get off the track really easily in my shopping.
