Weekly Wrap Up

I have been following a blog called Getting Ahead. Jennifer hosts a post every Friday called Weekly Wrap Up. It is a list of the frugal things she and her family did for the week. I really enjoy reading it and looking at other peoples links hoping to find some new ideas that I can incorporate with my family. I am thinking about doing this every Friday or at least when I remember! Hopefully I can inspire others as well. For this week the things I did to be frugal were...

Washed and reused ziplocks.
Washed all laundry in cold water.
Turned down thermostat to 67 during the day 65 at night.
Shorter showers.
Very minimal driving this week.
Signed up for lots of freebies online!
Tuned off heat/drying cycle on dishwasher.
Tried to remember to turn off lights when not in a room.
Opened south curtains on sunny days to warm the living room.

Way to go! I have to say I'm most impressed with the temperature adjustment, anything under 69 in this house is COLD.
