Frugal Friday

We made it to Friday! As most of you know school started back this week here. We had doctor appointments on Monday & Tuesday, but I was back to work on Wednesday and ended up working the last three days. And I already have 15 other days scheduled so far, and I am so grateful to be back to work. 

All meals were cooked and eaten at home this week. They included hamburgers, lasagna on two different nights, homemade pizza & salad, and Pedernales Potatoes. It was nice to have the Lasagna on hand for that second night as I didn't have to cook. Always a win-win in my book.  

Len Penzo has blogged his 8th annual cost survey of 10 popular brown bag sandwiches. This is always an interesting blog post of his to read each year before school starts back. Be sure to check it out.  

Another blog I started reading this week is Super Saving Tips. Some bloggers have a writing style that really speaks to me and this was one such blog. Read for yourself and see what you think. 

Just a quick post tonight to update. 

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

  1. Yay! back to school! When does your daughter begin classes?
    Have a great weekend!

    1. She starts classes not this coming Monday, but the next Monday. I'm so excited for her. :)

      I hope you have a great weekend too, Lili.

  2. Belinda, thanks so much for the shoutout. I really appreciate it. School in my area (NJ) doesn't start until after Labor Day so folks around here are still in the middle of back-to-school prep. I saw your recipe for Tuna Pate and I'm going to give that a try since I love tuna. I'll have to check out your other recipes as well. Thanks again.

    1. You're welcome, Gary. Thank you for visiting here and commenting too. We love the Tuna Pate recipe. A friend I worked with back in the 1990s gave that recipe to me and it has been a tried and true family favorite ever since then. I so wish our schools did not start until after Labor Day as it is a little bit cooler then. I hope you have a great weekend. :)
