3rd Frugal Week - January 2018

Last Sunday we went grocery shopping and were able to get in on some good deals. 

Using coupons and sales I was able to get Ragu pasta sauce for 67¢, store brand peanut butter for $1.39, and V-8 juice for 95¢. So, I bought 4 jars of Ragu, 6 jars of peanut butter, and 6 bottles of V-8.  

We also picked up multiple items on reduced yellow sticker such as a loaf of whole wheat bread for 39¢, quart size zip lock type bags for 49¢, hamburger buns for 69¢, and pita bread for 79¢. 

I earned $25 in PayPal money from MyPoints this week, and also earned $25 in PayPal money from Swagbucks this week. I will be using this money to add to other funds to pay my car Insurance this month.

There was no school here last week due to the MLK holiday and inclement weather. Icy road conditions closed school for the remainder of the week. 

We finally got out of the house on Friday to run some errands. There was still patchy ice sections on several of the roads. 

I bought a bottle of Tide this week for 78¢ using a $10 credit from Google Express. The deal was posted over at How to Shop for Free. Here is a link to the deal if you're interested. 

This week school is open and I am scheduled to sub three days. I hope you all have a great week!

  1. Sounds like some great deals. Sorry for no work last week. Hopefully your weather is doing better like ours.
    Have a great week.

    1. Much better, Cheryl. Thank you for asking. :)

  2. You found some great deals. The weather has been kind of crazy this month. I'm glad y'all were able to be in safe and sound rather than having to be out on the roads.

    1. Definitely, Shara. I would much rather be at home during times like that.

  3. Wonderful weather in West TN. 3* last week and 65* today. Inconsistent weather stirs our gray matter to contend. We were prepared, thanks to Pantry Principle.

    You needed a free week. Happy for your extra income in other ways. It all matters.

    1. Oh that sounds nice, Anna. It is about 60 here but it just started raining in the last hour. We've been prepared for this snowy weather too. It's so nice to be able to stay home and not have to get out in this weather thanks to the Pantry Principle. Thank you, Anna. :)

  4. Awesome grocery deals!! Love when I get deals like that. We had the snow here too. I didn't leave the house. lol I hope you have a great week!

    1. Thank you, Sarah. I hope you have a great week too. :)
