Landscaping and UFC

July 1st, 2017 at 04:59 pm

Both hubby and I spent the whole day yesterday cleaning up a small patch of grass on the side of our house. It had been neglected when we bought the house and it remained in total abandonment in the two years (almost 3 years) we've had the house. The only existing plants were the blue grass and we had to dig them out and replant them. We used a bunch of Hostas from different spots of our property to minimize the cost. In all, the only things we bought for the patch were two hanging plants ($10), $10 for mulch and a garden flag ($11 but it was a want and not a need). We rebuild the stone wall adding another layer of rocks, dug out and replanted the blue grass and other plants. We also mulched the front and side yard and at the end of the day and $31 later, this was the result:

Today was the first day of the Uber Frugal Challenge. No eating out but hubby did buy beer. I don't mind, he is a low maintenance kind of guy and he is entitled to enjoy something. Hoping for a no spend day tomorrow.
