    Another long day at the shops. My only sus purchase was 4 pretty sliver candles at 50c each for my cyclone prep box.

    I felt sorry for the dude with the big arrow sign at the new pizza shop and stopped with idea of buying just one pizza (normally we would get 3). Well there prices convinced me pretty quickly that we really didn't need take out. 28 bucks for a pizza that is nothing special. Certainly kept me on the straight and narrow. Kids were great about it. They all agreed that it wasn't worth it at that price.

    Did well today at the supermarket. Only bought bread, fruit and meat for dinner.

    Did stop at Donut King though. Not good for the wallet or the waist - but DD had her 18 month needles today and she did so well so we had a little treat.

    I went and opened a savings account with a different bank today so I can't touch the money easily once I deposit it. I was also $15 under the budget I set for stocking up on some groceries.

    Default Frugal February!!

    I checked the fuel prices online today as my tank was empty. By driving 2kms further I saved 14 cents per litre and I got a FREE 4 pack of Bundaberg Ginger Beer 😃

    I've got stuff I need to list on gumtree but haven't had a chance this week. Paid rego this week and expecting rates and school fees anyday. Not going to be frugal

    Very depressing time of year finance wise

    I pay rego yearly, but my insurances are monthly, my power bill is fortnightly, my gym membership is monthly. I don't think I could manage if I didn't pay the bigger bills in regular payments. I don't have a credit card. marie
