My Frugal Week

Good Sunday afternoon. I hope you've had a great week. 

We were able to get in on multiple freebies this week. I think that was the most freebies we ever received in one week. 

Last Saturday we attended an energy workshop. Afterwards we were given a free energy saving kit. 

One free orange juice from school. 

Three pairs of socks and this cloth napkin from a free box. 

We ordered a free drink from Sonic.

Taco Bell was giving away free tacos on Wednesday, so we made sure to stop by and get our taco. And ran a couple of errands on our to do list as well. 
We also had a voucher for $3.90 off of Snickers bars at Walmart and used that and ended up with eight Snickers bars in all. We also used the free Snickers coupon that gave out this week. 

Bailey ran into Walmart for something and used the Freeosk to get us both a sample of Bounce Wrinkle Guard.

e had to run to Publix for an RX and I used my Starkist tuna voucher and picked up three cans of albacore tuna for free. 

We also picked up an RX at CVS and got two free bottles of water.

We've been combining errands as usual when we go out, and cooking all of our meals at home.

I've been using up some lurking items in my pantry. One lone packet of hot chocolate, six packets of oatmeal, and one small box of raisins were used up this week. 

Tuesday night movie night had us watching The House with a Clock in its Walls, and we split a frozen Jack's pizza, which sell for $2.50 at Walmart. 

Several days this week it was cool enough to open the car windows and not have to run the air conditioner. This helps me to save money on gas. 

The day before Halloween it rained and rained here and a cold front moved in, so it's definitely cold here right now. 

The temperature in the house is down to 53 this morning, but I'm bundled up in a blanket, no heat on yet, but if this keeps up I may have to turn it on. 

Thursday evening we had some errands to run and ended up at the Samaritan Center thrift store. I found a like new Tupperware salt shaker for 35¢, a steno pad for 35¢, a new box of Christmas cards for 35¢. 

I've been busy sewing this weekend, repairing a towel that had a rip in it and sewing gifts for Christmas.

  4. I realized with Halloween and the busy week back to work, I didn't even do a Thrifty Thursday. Mostly, I tried to stay on spending plan, though yesterday was a budget stretch as I was out an about with my sisters. But, some purchases were for the holidays and some gifts, so not all was just entertainment-but a lot was.
