Inspired by my favourite Youtube Vlogger, Budget Girl, I’m starting a new weekly series. At the end of every week I’ll be sharing my Frugal Wins and Fails that happened during the week with you.
THREE FRUGAL WINS!
ONE: I brought my lunch to work 4 times this week!
A couple of weeks ago I decided I needed to get back into shape after half my wardrobe *magically* shrunk – a result of skipping the gym for a month and eating terribly.
I’ve been making roast chicken and roast veggies for lunch but starting to venture out to other healthy options.
TWO: Went to the gym 3 times this week
It’s so easy to start skipping the gym and especially after a long, draining day at work the last thing I feel like doing is being beaten up in my martial arts class. Before I knew it I had missed class for over a month and started to gain a lot of weight.
This week I’ve been forcing myself to go to the gym even though I really don’t want to, knowing that after I’ve finished class I’ll feel fantastic.
THREE: I sold something on eBay!
I sold an old jacket on eBay! I’ve been slowly posting my unwanted clothes up on eBay and minimising my wardrobe and possessions to things I love, get value from and are good quality. Sales have been slow and I’m realising my fast fashion impulse purchases hold little to no value after they leave the shop floor.
ONE FRUGAL FAIL 😦
ONE: I learned that I am NOT a green thumb
Half of my herb garden which I bought last week is slowly dying. Turns out I’ve been overwatering them, causing the coriander to go from perky and green to shrivelled and dying within days.
What have your week’s frugal wins and fails been?
