Last Week’s Frugal Accomplishments
With being super busy, we relied on several super quick and easy meals. We had breakfast for dinner, burgers on the grill, pork roll & bagel sandwiches, and even used a gift card to go out to dinner one night.
We took advantage of the beautiful weather in the first half of last week, and spent the day with friends at the Philadelphia Zoo. We have a membership to the zoo, and this was our 3rd time using it, so we have more than made out on this deal.
I purchased the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle and 70 ebooks, 14 printables, 9 ecourses & audio files, and 9 bonuses all for only $29.97! This bundle included the 31 Days to a Clutter Free Life by Ruth Soukup which on its own sells for about $12, so to get all of the ebooks and resources for $29.97 was a HUGE bargain.
I harvested green onions and lettuce from the garden.
We planted a herb garden on our kitchen window sill.
I planted potatoes, cucumbers, and corn from seed. I purchased peppers & tomatoes seedlings to transplant.
I used a coupon to save 60% on an birthday gift while I was shopping at Joann Fabrics.
I returned my used ink cartridges to Office Max to get the credit on my account.
I shopped around for kitty litter, and found that I can save $2 a container by purchasing the litter at Walmart instead of at ShopRite! I don’t usually shop at Walmart because the local store is always crowded, and the parking lot is a hot mess, so I drove a little bit further and found a Walmart that has a better parking lot, and the store wasn’t busy. We stocked up on kitty littler (I also had printed some coupons, so we saved even more). Then, I saw that there was a set of shelves with grocery clearance on them. We purchase two 1 lb bags of pecans for $6 total! Usually, each of those bags goes for close to $12! I’m going to store the pecans in the freezer so they stay fresh until I’m ready to bake with them. They should keep in the freezer for up to a year.
What did you do to save your family money this week?
