Getting ahead Frugal and Simple

February 13, 2009

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?

    That is awesome that people want to trade lunches with him. a question on the amazon e-certificates. How far out do they expire? I have enough points to cash in for a $10 on, but really want to save up for a dehydrator, and I will need much more than that. I don’t want the certificate to expire before I earn enough. Thanks for participating.

    Jennifer, when you cash them in you will receive an e-mail with a code. If you already have an account set-up you can click over there and then load that e-certificate up as a credit to your account – the credits – to my knowledge do not expire. That way the next time you order you have the choice of using your credit or not.
