Cherry Saturday 10 – 4- 2014

Today is International Frugal Fun Day. Cheap out on the good times, it’s a worldwide necessity.

  1. That’s pretty much every day for me — the frugal part at least. I was supposed to have the motto of “More Fun in Fourteen” this year, but that seems to have been supplanted by “more work in Fourteen,” although it’s work I love and there have been some really fun days, but it’s still work.

  2. Well I am zen-ing. If that is frugal, OK but I hate that word! I’m getting rid of everything in my house that doesn’t make me smile, feel good, have a use, or isn’t something beautiful that I love looking at or using. I’m tired of excess so I want everything to have a use or it’s outta here! We donate everything, too, so you gotta feel good about that! I guess I AM having “More Fun in Fourteen”!!!

  3. Most of my fun tends to be frugal everyday. Perhaps the word hasn’t reached in international community…

    Also, I’m writing, so today’s “fun” is taking a nap in between scenes. I guess that’s cheap, though, since I already own the couch.

  4. Frugal fun day? Does painting your own bedroom count as fun? (Because you’re too cheap to pay someone else.) It is fun now to walk in there and see it all finished, but my shoulders hurt, so that’s not fun.

  5. Spring cleaning! Frugal – I use a broom, cloth and various dilutions of sugar soap so, yes. Fun – meh but there are moment of satisfaction. All the windows open at once for the first time in months, new herb box set up in a sunny patch, cats rolling on the sun warmed (weeded!) front path. Best bit? Tomorrow there will be no housework at all.

  6. Frugal! I am stripping paint with a heat gun instead of hiring someone to do it for me for beaucoup bucks. Even needing a new heat gun, it is saving me major money. Color me feeling virtuous. And smug.

    Of course, my nephew said he would have paid the money for someone else to do it (Generation Xer) and I said that that is why I had more money saved then he does. Then he said “yes, but he has a life and would be enjoying the finished product while I will still be scrapping paint months from now. And how much fun is money in the bank compared to going for a hike on the mountain?” Sigh.

  7. I took my 8-years old nephew to an indoor fun park. We rode rides and played games for two and a half hours all for $20. Frugal, fun and exhilarating. He’s the best date I’ve had in a good long while.

  8. My friend and I hit two community rummage sales. I spent $14.75 for two all-cotton sweaters and a blouse, two painting how-to books, two purses to paint, two Halloween candleholders and a spooky “Beware!” sign, and an unused glasses case for my husband. And a brownie.
