Jennifer at Getting Ahead started a series called Getting Ahead Frugal and Simple and asks others to post how they do each week. Well, another week has passed and I’m here to tell you that it was and wasn’t frugal – does that make sense?
What we did that was frugal:
Bear (DH) took his lunch everyday.
We ate at home all week but 1 day – Had to neither one of us was feeling energetic and we had a two for one coupon!
Sewed the buckles back on JT’s sheet so that we can keep using it instead of “buying” a new one – he is growing so fast! This is a hand me down from Zeke. See, even without kids my horsey kids use hand-me downs!
Purchased 3 bags of corn from a friend who buys in bulk saving us 3.00/bag!
Mailed in my redemption form to Purina Pro Club for my rebate check – $70.00!
Printed off and mapped out my transactions for tonight and tomorrow. Looked over the sale ads for week of 3/15 – will be posting them on my blog Saturday.
Received my check for taking a phone survey – $125.00 this week! Woo Hoo!
Received my Survey check from opinion Outpost – $10.00! Want to learn more – check it out here.
Just cashed in enough Swagbucks for $10.00 in Amazon.com! Check out how you too can get great prizes just for surfin’ the web here!
Bear (DH) and I are working on clean-up around the house and repairing items ourselves – saving us a TON of money!
Working on getting my books I now longer want on Half.com to pick up some extra cash – I’ll be posting them next week.
Checked out mint.com but decided to hold one more month.
Sitting down with Bear tonight to formulate a game plan for our dinners for the next two weeks. I’m going to try and get this more formalized.
Not so frugal
Remember I fixed my printer – well I just gave it another 2 days – it pootered out on me again and so we decided to look for a new one – got it last night and got a real good deal on it – we got the HP OfficeInkJet 6310 it was on sale and had some “incentives”. Best of all, my next to new ink cartridges in the old printer will work in this one! Woo Hoo!
Had to purchase some Wormer and B12 without being able to Shop around because Charlie is sick and needed it like last week! I will definitely keep this stuff on hand from now on!
So – what have you done This last week?
