My frugal act for yesterday (I haven’t thought of a way to be frugal today, except for not going shopping like I want to), was to not wash my hair and not wear make-up.
Now before you go ‘ewwwww, gag me with a spoon!‘, let me tell you that I don’t work on Wednesdays, as kids in France don’t have school on Wednesdays. So I don’t have maintain the same sort of professional appearance on days that I work. So in that sense I’m saving on the use of shampoo, conditioner, eyeliner, mascara etc. I also think it’s better for my hair and skin, as my hair and skin don’t get as dried out when I skip washing them.
It may be a little offputting (or maybe I’m becoming French, as my husband claims), but that’s how I saved money yesterday.
And you? What did you do that was frugal?
