It's been quiet here at frugal Down Under and I re-juggle my life with my cut back on work hours, biking to and back from work and picking up Dolly for school. It's wonderful and I will tell you more about it soon :-)
But today I want to quickly show you our cash made from the bottle and cans we have collected in the past 2 weeks. Yesterday he headed to the cash for cans depot and were rewarded with $30!
|Dolly Counting and Dividing Money After Depositing Our Bottle and Cans.|
Dolly and I split it in half. I placed my half in our family Borneo trip savings and Dolly then divided hers into 3. She placed $5 in the saving for a horse money box, $5 into her spending money box and $5 into her school banking for her future big ticket items (home, uni, car).
I started off with the initial pick out of the recycling bin. Then 3 units out of the 6 gave us their bottles and cans. Also every time I saw one on the footpath in front of our home I picked it up and added it to our crates instead of the bin. And my mum found another 20 of so for us. We gathered a total of 300 with no change to our lifestyle and now Dolly has a great little earner and our Borneo fund is building up again.
Did you make an extra cash this week?
