5 Ways We’ve Saved Money This Week 64

My poor daughter.  She missed her Christmas party at school due to germs.  And on Valentine’s Day, the germs paid her another visit.  She desperately wanted to go to school, but I obviously couldn’t spread those germs through her classmates.

Instead, we popped some popcorn, I made some hot chocolate, and we watched Tangled.  Not a substitute for fun with her friends, but at least it turned her frown upside down.

Sometimes you’ve just got to make the most of your situation.  I hope I can teach her to look for the good!

When I walked in the door from a meeting I couldn’t miss, I couldn’t help but joke that our living room looked like a Civil War hospital scene.  At one point this week, all 7 of us were sick at home.  It’s not much fun to power through and make sure everyone is still cared for, but I still haven’t located the phone number for my substitute mom.  So on we go.

The kids have been counting down the days to this wonderful day of the year.  As the number shrinks smaller and smaller, the excitement grows and grows.  And now here we are.  The last day of school before Christmas break!

I’m hoping to find some fun, frugal things to do on our days off of school.  Got any good suggestions?  We also have two birthdays to fit in before the end of the year.  It’s a busy time of year for this Medium Sized Family!

Our family celebrates St. Nick day on December 6th each year.  The kids wake up to find a small stocking full of candy.  This year I was able to find some old fashioned candies at the local Five and Dime store.  It was no more expensive than most candy at the store, so I grabbed some.  It made the day more special!

We don’t go all out to celebrate the day.  But any day that begins with chocolate is awesome in my book.
