Frugal Friday ~ October 22, 2021

Welcome to Friday! 

My Frugal Week

On Saturday we had a Walmart grocery order delivered to our home. Afterwards I cooked up the ground beef for tacos and nachos for the weekend. I cut up the onions, tomatoes, lettuce, and shredded the cheese. I also made a seven layer taco dip and baked a chocolate cake for Bailey’s birthday. It was so nice to have all the food prepared ahead of time, so I could enjoy her birthday too. 

On Tuesday we went to town to run some errands and I drove for the first time since my surgery. It felt great and Bailey was able to pick up some of her birthday freebies.

Saving on Entertainment

Bailey is a Harry Potter fan, so for her birthday she wanted to watch the Harry Potter films all over again. So starting last Saturday, we watched one film per day as we were eating dinner. She has all of the DVDs so this came at no cost to us. And best of all, she was thrilled watching them all over again. 

We also began playing games again this week, which included Ramen Fury, Sorry, and Oh Gnome You Don’t! The Sorry game was one we picked up at a yard sale and is vintage, so the playing pieces are very nice since it is  vintage game. 

What I've been Reading This Week


Bailey loaded up on birthday freebies this week. Items she received free included a small pizza from Marcos, a free slice of pizza from Sbarros, a free cookie from both Chick-fil-a and The Great American Cookie shop, free sandwiches from Firehouse Subs and Jimmy Johns. She also got a free blueberry biscuit from Bojangles and a free chocolate croissant from Panera Bread. 

On Thursday we both received a free Cheesy Toasted Breakfast Burrito from Taco Bell, which was giving them free to everyone. We stopped in on our way to a yard sale where Bailey found some plants. 

That is all the news to report on our frugal week in Tennessee. Thank you for dropping by, you are always welcome here. We would love to hear about your week in the comment section.
