Frugal Frog Friday
Today I will be working late, so being frugal should not be a problem! Lately we have been doing Friday night DVR dates, but I would like to actually try to “Do” something. I think I may try to persuage Chase to go on a Fall Walk with me tonight. The temperature is going down so I think we may be able to smell fall tonight! YAY!
Maybe we will stop by our neighborhood Starbucks and get some hot chocolate. That would be thrilling—first cocoa of the year! I always order the kid sizes because they are exra cheap and a PERFECT amount. I like my drinks to be steaming hot at Every. Single. Sip. and getting a shorty ensures that this happens.
I am babysitting these cuties for 6 hours:
It will actually be fun and frugal—score! I actually worked a lot of overtime this week, so we might do something crazy like go out to dinner—oh my!
We also plan to go to the library to get some more free magazines and DVD’s. Forget Disney World, I think the library is the happiest place on earth!
If we do go out to dinner, I have been craving Mexican food like CRAZY. I actually find that eating Paleo is fairly simple at a Mexican restaurant if I just order the fajitas without the tortillas. The hard part is to avoid the chips and salsa…I may be “that girl” that brings crudites to dunk in the salsa. Would that be weird?
The great thing about Mexican food is that it is STINKING cheap. Being a frugal frog is rarely difficult, especially if you hate the taste of alcohol, thus forgoing any and all margaritas.
Sunday we get to have quality time with out little brother. I am trying to convince Chase that we need to go apple picking again. We have taken the little bro and he would LOVE it. He has never picked apples, and has been dying to do so. Actually, he has been also begging to make apple butter. He is obsessed with the concept.
Does anyone have any ideas on how one would go about making apple butter? It seems like quite the ordeal. I may have to beg him to consider something more rudimentary…like apple crisp.
The wonderful things is that apple picking is actually a great deal! At the orchard we go to, you get an incredible amount of organic apples for a reduced price, since you do all of the work! Plus, the experience is just so autumnal!
What are your weekend plans? Any ways in which you plan to be a frugal frog?
