I have been incredibly distracted from my frugality goal lately. The good news is I started a photography business via my photography goal, but the bad news is I can’t really use it as an excuse to not be frugal.
I have made some progress in the area. I started purchasing things from Facebook Marketplace, especially toys and kid furniture. Before my mission to be cheaper began, I never considered taking friends’ old items or even buying gently used; I would always just buy what I needed as I needed it. But a good friend moved recently, and I inherited a great play kitchen and some storage! Both things I was needing.
We also utilized Facebook Marketplace to sell items that we no longer needed, and in the past I would have just thrown them out.
So while I’m not saving thousands, I have used resources to help me save some. Progress is progress!
