Frugal Friday: Week 1 of 2014!

Frugal Friday | www.flonmymind.com

Getting myself out of vacation mode has been a struggle. Pair that with the cold temps Atlanta is having and I’m surprised I made it out of the house today and yesterday. I’m planning a weekend of staying home and milling around my apartment organizing for the new year.

I go too crazy when I went to Miami. I’m going to dinner and a movie with friends but I think I’m going to keep the price down to a reasonable amount. Did anyone make finance-based New Year’s resolutions? I’m still cementing my goals and I would love to hear what you came up with!

This week’s Frugal Friday…

– I got this J.Crew dress in cobalt blue for under $25 (orig. $168). I am going to debut this at a conference I’m going to in May.

– I only spent around $60 on the return trip from Miami to Atlanta. So in total, driving cost me $120 instead of probably over $500 for a plane ticket. Big savings!

– I ate snacks from my Mom on the way back to GA and resisted to stop and buy lunch. I did end up buying breakfast and getting Jimmy Johns for dinner.

– I only spent $25 on groceries on Wednesday and it’s going to last me until Sunday. That equals around $6.81 per day on food. (I did factor in my dinner out tonight so my math could have gone awry)

Do you have any money related New Year’s resolutions?
