My Frugal Week

Staples recently sent me a coupon for $10 off a $10 purchase. Not wanting this freebie to go to waste, my daughter and I stopped in there yesterday to use it. We ended up with a package of colored filler paper, heavy duty packaging tape, and some one touch tape strips as well. I ended up paying $1.39 for these items, so not bad at all. 

Panara Bread recently sent me an email letting me know that my rewards card with them had a free bagel on it every day in February. So far I have taken advantage of it three times choosing a cinnamon raisin bagel each time. What a great reward.  :)

My first bagel...

IGA has a sale on Hillshire Farm Little Smokies this week. They are priced at $2.00 per package. 

We were lucky to be able to get the five packs pictured here. The cashier said they had been sold out earlier in the day and when I went back the next day they still did not have any more. 

These will make for some inexpensive dinners. I've already made pigs in a blanket with them one night for dinner this week. 

Here are a few cleaning products I picked up for $1.00 each this week. 

Two bleach tabs for the commode and a package of eight scouring pads. 

I always cut these scouring pads in half and then into quarters and usually into eighths to make them last longer. These will last me well over one year using them this way. 

Here is a man after my own heart. 

Someone posted this picture on Facebook of a customer buying eggs at our local Aldi where they were on sale for 99¢ a carton this week.  The man has twelve cartons of eggs in his cart. Like I said, a man after my own heart.  :) 

How was your week?

  1. Our aldis has a limit of six cartons, I only bought 3. I am not a egg eater but my poor dh is going to be eating all kinds of eggs the next few weeks with having 6 doz. in my basement fridge. Aldi also had 2lb. carrots on sale so I bought 5 which before reading your blog I never would have done. Have a great week. Cheryl

    1. Our IGA had a limit of 4 eggs last week, which is what I bought. My daughter loves fried eggs, but I am no longer a fan of those. We ate them when I was growing up with ketchup. You couldn't pay me to eat that now. lol

      Glad you are stocked up on carrots. We love them cooked in the pressure cooker. We had them twice last week.

      I hope you have a great week too. :)

    2. Funny. I grew up eating ketchup on eggs. Now, I am limited to egg whites and would not consider ketchup on anything I eat.

      Carrots and egg deals were great for you.

    3. Thank you, Anna.

      These days I would only eat ketchup with fries or meatloaf, but that is about it. :)

  2. Our Weis Markets had a 1 day sale on Friday where eggs were $1.50(very good price for here)so I bought 4 dozen......ONLY 4 dozen since I had 3 dozen left from another store's sale a few weeks ago. lolz

    1. LOL, I would have stocked up too. That is a good price considering what price they were for the last six months.

  3. Hi,
    Looks like you had a fun and frugal week.:) We are in Southern Cali
    and have not seen the great egg prices yet.Maybe soon ?
    Lili at the Creative savv has a post on how to freeze eggs in case any of you lucky gals end up with too many eggs.

    1. Thank you, Patti. I hope the lower egg prices find their way out to you in California soon. I will have to check out Lili's post on the extra eggs, thanks. :)


I’m so glad you’re here, taking time out of your day to comment on my blog. Thank you and I hope you have a wonderful day filled with blessings and love.
