Have you ever thought about how much money you are saving your family by doing things yourself?
This crossed my mind today and I like to think of it as money I made my family. I think of it that way because I would do these things regardless and by doing them myself, therefore, I made money :) The way I see it, the more money I save my family, the more money we have to do FUN things.
This is me putting a price on my time for this weekend.
Highlights: $85 at LEAST for just foil highlights and a wash.
What I paid: $0 I used the stuff I have, I buy at Sally's and it lasts me a LONG time
Pedi/Mani: $30 is the least I have seen this combo for and that's on Groupon and Social Living
What I paid: $0 I have everything I need including the razor thing for the dead skin on my heels!
Rented a Movie from RedBox: $1
What I paid: $0- I had a free code
Watched 2 new movies we have not seen before $2 at least to rent from Redbox
What I paid $0- got them from the library
bought a New vase with seashell filler decoration for my living room: $53 at least for the "model" I loved at Pottery Barn
What I paid $2 -$1 for each the vase and filler from Dollar Tree
Birthday Card, Hats, party favors, and cookie mix and tin to finish off hubbies birthday care package: $10 roughly
What I paid: $5 -dollar tree and outlet store
Mcdonald's Frozen Strawberry lemonade for K: $2 roughly
What I paid $0- coupon from today's paper
Not to mention cooking all meals all weekend and the Uncle Ben's rice I got FREE. $2.30 value.. (my coupon was expiring)

So how much did YOU make this weekend? Our time is Money ladies.
Oh and later this week I will be waxing myself.. I don't see paying all that money for stuff I can do myself :)
Have a great Week..
