Frugal February 2022 | How The Month Played Out

I’ve just completed another Frugal February and I feel good about it. It’s been good practice to pause and actively consider whether a purchase is essential – most of the time, it hasn’t been. I’ve saved money, but what of the purchases I did make?

Purchases came under one category: scrapbooking supplies – mainly cardstock and patterned paper and glue. But you know, to my mind, those supplies were essential. 🙂

There were several occasions where I was able to resist making a purchase:

  • I ignored the flyer about the Boden sale
  • I resisted purchasing more books – I noted down four new titles I want to read (probably on Kindle)
  • I resisted buying a new work skirt or two
  • There were no slices of cake and pots of tea in our local dog-friendly café

So while Fugal February can’t be considered an unqualified success, I was much more aware of the purchases I did make and resisted ‘adding to basket’ without careful thought.

  1. You did really well. I try and leave 24 hours between putting something in an online shopping basket to going back to buy it and very often I’ve changed my mind in the meantime! I bet you’re looking forward to your tea and cake at the cafe, made all the more delicious by 28 days gap between your last treat 🙂
