So it’s Friday. And I’m feeling frugal. Hence the title.
I have discovered the two secret ingredients that lead to great innovation:
an empty bank account and laziness.
Think about it.
The inventor of the remote control? Come on. That dude did not set out to change the world – he just didn’t want to get off his butt to change the channel.
So I confess the same. The future ideas for Frugal Friday that I will share with y’all were inspired because I was being
stingy thrifty. Or I just wanted more time to chill on the couch. So should that be Frumpy Friday? Or Fritter-away Friday? Or should I just wait a day and call it Slothful Saturday. Hmmmm. I’ll give it a tink and get back to ya.
I’ve been perusing lots of DIY websites, and they all include a lot of pictures. And because this idea is soooo complex, I’m going to show you, in detail, how to do this Fantastically Frugal Friday Feat.
Go get a green and yellow kitchen sponge. Ya know, the kind with the scrubby on one side and smoothie on the other (just don’t drink it). Then get a cute pair of scissors. If they’re ugly, throw them out and go get a fun pair. I’ll wait.
Now here comes the really hard part – cut (using only cute scissors) one sponge into three! I’m including lots of detailed pictures to help.
I must confess that this project didn’t start because of frugaling or frittering. I simply find that the smaller sponges fit better in my hand and get into the creases of my pots and pans better. And then I can toss them when they start to get schmengy.
Now friends, go fritter away your fabulous Friday!
