Ways to save money each week: week 6 & 7
Finding ways to save money each week is a new goal for our family.
I read about a few new ways to save money that we will be trying out in the future.

This was a physically tough two weeks. We took a staycation during week 6 and did some yard work. The mulch pile you see above was moved, by hand, over the course of about 6 hours during day 3 of the staycation. We are having some landscaping work done, work that I don't have the skill to complete myself, and we asked him to quote us on adding some mulch and rock. His price was a bit high for my taste so I decided to take the work on myself. We saved a few hundred bucks in the process, but boy was I tired at the end.
During week 7 we got the first of two COVID shots. That really wore us out. Had to take a nap over lunch the second day and ended up going to bed quite early a few nights in a row. At least we didn't spend any extra money as a result, so that's a bonus I guess.
