Jennifer at Getting Ahead has started a series called Getting ahead: Weekly Wrap-up and this details what she did in the past week to live more frugal and simple. Raging Bear Ranch Frugal week:
Well, it has been a very frugal week for us here at Raging Bear Ranch.
I received another check for rebates and so I was able to use that for my lunches (I get to keep 1/2 of my rebates for splurging).
Did not go anywhere other than work and barn.
Bear took his lunch all week – His friends try to trade with him!
No money laid out for shopping.
Bear got a promotion and a raise! Woo Hoo!
What I did that will help us out later:
Organized (still) my coupon notebook
Sent off for several free samples/coupons
Completed some surveys
Cashed in my Swagbucks for $10.00 in Amazon e-certificates
setting up my pantry storage section – I created lists that I hope will
help us manage our stockpiling better.
Restocked our first aid kits and organized our medicine cabinet
So what did you do this week?
